    Donald Trump Once Got Fleeced in Mexico, and He's Still Very Angry


    Donald Trump has a Mexico problem.

    No, not that one -- a $12 million one involving the 2007 Miss Universe pageant.

    Behind the headlines over Trump’s Mexico-bashing remarks is a legal dispute between the billionaire presidential candidate and two Mexican businessmen. Trump says they owe him millions from the beauty contest eight years ago.

    The dispute has been lost amid the uproar on both sides of the border after Trump -- property-mogul-turned-reality-TV-star-turned-presidential-candidate -- accused Mexicans of bringing drugs and crime to the U.S. during his campaign kickoff speech June 16. No one has suggested that his money problems in Mexico prompted the remarks. But the legal flap has led Trump to swear off doing business with the entire country, slam its court system as corrupt and suggest building an impenetrable wall to keep Mexicans from ripping off the U.S.

    “The defendants have been successful in using a corrupt legal and governmental system to delay and stall the fulfillment of their obligation to the Miss Universe organization,” Michael Cohen, special counsel to Trump, said in an e-mail. “It is a shame that these few individuals can have such a negative effect on a country and a country’s reputation.”

    Trump’s reputation south of the border has also taken a hit. Interior Minister Miguel Angel Osorio Chong condemned his comments on Mexican immigrants as “prejudiced and absurd.” Last week, photos circulated on the Web of a shop in northern Mexico that fashioned a pinata after Trump.

    Pageant Boycott
    On Thursday, Univision Communications Inc., the largest U.S. Spanish-language broadcaster, which is partly owned by Mexico City-based Grupo Televisa SAB, canceled its telecast of the Miss USA pageant, also a Trump property.

    Trump has since issued a statement saying he is “close friends with many Mexican people.” As far as Univision is concerned, he told CNN he’d sue over any contract breach for “tremendous amounts of money.”

    It shouldn’t come as a surprise that doing business in Mexico has some hazards. The Latin American country ranks fourth-to-last among Group of 20 nations on Transparency International’s corruption index.

    Trump experienced the brunt of it, according to his lawyers. They say that businessman Pedro Rodriguez, owner of Grupo Promotor MU Mexico SA, signed a $6.5 million agreement to host the Miss Universe pageant in 2006. Trump owns Miss Universe jointly with Comcast Corp.’s NBCUniversal, which disavowed his remarks about immigration.

    Bogus Collateral
    Rodriguez paid $1 million upfront. As collateral for the remainder, he agreed to set up a trust containing 26 properties belonging to a second businessman, Rodolfo Rosas, according to Omar Guerrero, a Mexico-City-based partner with Hogan Lovells who’s representing Trump. Once the show was over, they refused to pay the balance, and it was impossible to claim the collateral.

    It turns out that the assets were never actually contributed to the trust, according to Trump’s lawyers.

    Calls and e-mails to Rodriguez, Rosas and their attorneys went unanswered. In a blog post with no date, a writer identifying himself as Rosas said he never signed the agreement with Trump and offered up the collateral only as a favor to Rodriguez.

    “Donald Trump lies, and with his lies he creates a farce akin to his reality show,” Rosas wrote on rodolforosasmoya.mx.

    Arbitration Ruling
    Eventually the Miss Universe organization took the case to an arbitration tribunal in Mexico and won. But attempts to enforce the decision stalled in the Mexican court system after multiple appeals and injunctions by the defendants, according to the lawyers.

    Including interest and legal fees, the amount owed has swelled to $12 million, the Trump team says.

    With that as the backdrop, Trump sounded off to his 3 million Twitter followers on Feb. 24: “I have a lawsuit in Mexico’s corrupt court system that I won but so far can’t collect. Don’t do business with Mexico!”

    A week later, he vowed that Mexico will never again host the Miss Universe pageant.

    Trump is a retarded narcissist. That is how 3 hookers were able to put their claws into him. He couldn't handle being mayor of Cousin Toucher, Arkansas, much less be POTUS.

    Nah. The joint that hosted Miss Universe down there paid the deposit and stiffed him on the rest of the money. Same type of thing he has done to many of his attorneys.

    in a sick perverse way it might be fun to see him president, until he ruins the country and has us in several wars with different countries, but he would be anything but dull!

    A coalition of Latino organizations is stepping up the pressure on NBCUniversal to reconsider its business relationship with Donald Trump.
    In a statement on Saturday, the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda simultaneously applauded Univision's decision to sever ties with Trump and urged NBC to "follow Univision's lead."

    Members of the coalition, NHLA for short, include business, media, and cultural advocacy groups like the National Council of La Raza, the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Presente.org and the National Hispanic Media Coalition.

    It called on NBCUniversal to "withdraw from airing the Miss USA pageant and terminate its financial ties to Donald Trump."

    Univision similarly canceled its airing of Miss USA, slated for July 12, in the wake of Trump's offensive remarks about Mexican immigrants. Trump, now a presidential candidate, has called Mexicans "rapists" and "killers," among other things.

    Univision's decision was announced on Thursday. The network had a long-term contract with Trump to televise Miss USA and Miss Universe, and Trump has threatened to sue over the breach of contract.

    NBC's ties with Trump have since come under scrutiny. NBCUniversal owns half of the pageant business while Trump owns the rest. So NBC is not just a broadcaster of Miss USA, it's a business partner of The Trump Organization.

    CNNMoney reported on Friday that NBC is reviewing its contracts with Trump. For now the network has distanced itself from the candidate's offensive comments but said nothing about the business venture or the upcoming broadcast.

    One of the coalition members, Felix Sanchez, chairman of the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts, said Univision's decision "is civil rights leadership in the digital age."

    He said, "We implore NBCU to follow Univision's lead and take a similar stance and sever their financial relationship with Mr. Trump, in light of the bigoted way he has denigrated Mexicans and Mexican-Americans."

    An representative of NBC, which is owned by Comcast (CCV), declined to comment on Saturday.

    Is this all about people who can't understand the difference between "they're rapists" and "their rapists"?

    I'm surprised his wig didn't come off during the match. And apparently the exception for putting over guests was Sting.

    Eventually he may learn that venting first and thinking later and then backtracking, will ultimately hurt him more in the political world. This is not his kingdom where he rules unchallenged and unquestioned. He is seeking the votes of a nation, a great and diverse nation, that needs a leader to bring us together and assert our supremacy on the international arena. But I would rather have his honesty and know who he is and how he thinks than, the normal programmed politician we get. If he can balance this...we may have a new president.

    This is again MSM railroading trump. He's made it quite clear that he did not say all Mexicans are rapists, but the one ones coming here consist of high percentage of criminals and rapists. He is right. The illegals coming here have a higher percentage of rapists and criminals than average population of Mexico. MSM will not look at that assertion but prefer to misquote him. I will vote for Trump just because it will piss the MSM off. He couldnt do any worse than the coterie of other candidates we have.

    NBC drops Donald Trump over comments about Mexicans
    By Associated Press
    June 29, 2015 | 2:34pm

    NEW YORK — NBC said Monday that it is ending its business relationship with mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump because of comments he made about immigrants during the announcement of his campaign.

    NBC said it would no longer air the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which had been a joint venture between the company and Trump. Trump has said he is no longer appearing in the television show “The Apprentice.” NBC said “Celebrity Apprentice” will continue to go on without him.

    Last week, Univision said that it was canceling its coverage of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. Trump had portrayed some immigrants from Mexico as bringing drugs and crime to the country in his presidential kickoff speech.

    I'm voting for Trump for his stand on Rosie O'Donnel:

    NBC cuts ties with Donald Trump over Mexico remarks; network will drop Miss USA and he won't appear on 'Apprentice'

    BY DON KAPLAN , CELESTE KATZ
    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    Monday, June 29, 2015, 2:31 PM

    He’s fired!

    NBC Universal is pulling the plug on motormouthed GOP presidential hopeful Donald Trump after he trashed Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and drug pushers.

    “At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values. Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump,” the network said in a statement Monday.

    NBC is dumping coverage of next month’s Miss USA pageant, which Trump partially controls thanks to his interest in the Miss Universe organization.

    The annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC.
