GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump says he is no longer affiliated with NBC – the network that has carried Trump’s Miss USA pageant and The Apprentice.

NBC and Univision decided not to broadcast Trump’s Miss USA pageant after statements he made during his presidential announcement in New York City on illegal immigration.

“Mr. Trump stands by his statements on illegal immigration, which are accurate,” Trump’s press release reads. “NBC is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct— that is why our country is in serious trouble.”

Trump adds:

We must have strong borders and not let illegal immigrants enter the United States. As has been stated continuously in the press, people are pouring across our borders unabated. Public reports routinely state great amounts of crime are being committed by illegal immigrants. This must be stopped and it must be stopped now. Long ago I told NBC that I would not being doing The Apprentice because I am running for President in order to Make our Country Great Again.

Trump says NBC and others who have caused controversy over his statements don’t understand the serious illegal immigration problem facing America:

If NBC is so weak and so foolish to not understand the serious illegal immigration problem in the United States, coupled with the horrendous and unfair trade deals we are making with Mexico, then their contract violating closure of Miss Universe/Miss USA will be determined in court. Furthermore, they will stand behind lying Brian Williams, but won’t stand behind people that tell it like it is, as unpleasant as that may be.
