Donald Trump Kicks Univision Out of Florida Rally, Campaign Confirms
"It is a conflict of interest."
Donald Trump had a Univision crew attempting to cover his Florida rally removed from the event on Friday, his campaign confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.
"Mr. Trump is suing Univision for $500 million and until that is resolved it is a conflict of interest," Hope Hicks, spokeswoman for the Trump campaign said in an email.
No additional information was offered.
The Friday event was held at the Trump National Doral hotel in Miami.

In June, Trump sued Univision after it cut ties with him over remarks the former Apprentice host made about undocumented immigrants from Mexico.
The billionaire business mogul and GOP presidential frontrunner claims the Hispanic media organization violated its contract with him and his Miss Universe Organization.
Univision did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
