TV company cuts ties with Trump

A MAJOR TV network in the US is dropping the Miss USA pageant and says it will cut all business ties with Donald Trump. The move comes after comments the Republican presidential candidate made about Mexican immigrants.

The Spanish-language firm said it was a response to what it called "insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants" by Trump, a part owner of Miss Universe. Last week, Trump accused Latino immigrants of bringing drugs, crime and rapists to the US.
