Donald Trump Bans Univision Staff From His Properties, Publishes Anchor's Phone Number
The presidential hopeful fired back after the Spanish-language network announced that it would be cutting ties with his Miss Universe Organization on Thursday.
Donald Trump is firing back at Univision following the network's decision to end its business relationship with Trump's Miss Universe Organization due to "insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants" made during his presidential announcement speech.
The presidential candidate issued a letter to Univision president Randy Falco on Friday, stating that all of the network's staff and representatives were no longer welcome on any of his owned properties.
"Please be advised that under no circumstances is any officer or representative of Univision allowed to use Trump National Doral, Miami — its golf courses or any of its facilities," the letter reads. "Also, it's too bad you didn't have the courage to call me yourself instead of delegating the task to Beau [Ferrari, exec vp operations]."
Trump concluded the letter, posted in full to his Instagram account, with a P.S. note that states, "Please congratulate your Mexican Government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States. However, inform them that should I become President, those days are over."
The Apprentice star also took another jab at Univision by posting a separate photo of a hand-written letter sent to him by Jorge Ramos, one of the network's anchors, to Instagram on Friday morning. He captioned it: "Univision said they don't like Trump yet Jorge Ramos and their other anchors are begging me for interviews."
In the letter penned by Ramos, the anchor personally requests to speak with Trump and offers his cell phone number for reference (which Trump doesn't bother to blur out for privacy).
"I want to write you personally to request an interview. But so far, your team has declined. I am sure you have a lot of things to say...and I have a lot of things to ask," Ramos writes. "I know this is an important issue for you and for me."
