Rupert Murdoch Criticizes Donald Trump Over Mexican-Immigrant Comments
"Mexican immigrants, as with all immigrants, have much lower crime rates than native born. Eg El Paso safest city in U.S. Trump wrong," Murdoch posted on Twitter.
Rupert Murdoch apparently won't be supporting Donald Trump's presidential campaign.
On Sunday, the Australian-born media mogul, who became a U.S. citizen in 1985, became the latest to decry the Republican candidate's comments about Mexican immigrants in a message posted on Twitter.

Trump drew the ire of several groups when he said in his campaign-announcement speech: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best; they're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."
Since then, NBC, Univision and Macy's have cut ties with the mogul. His Miss USA Pageant now is set to air on Reelz on Sunday night, although Trump won't be there, he tweeted Saturday.
I will not be able to attend the Miss USA pageant tomorrow night because I am campaigning in Phoenix. Wishing all well!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 12, 2015
