BTW, Mr. Trump, she’s not a criminal. She only plays one on TV.
Despite the backlash, Trump stuck to his guns.

Sanchez and de la Fuente were scheduled to host the Spanish-language broadcast.
Sanchez posted this heartfelt message on Twitter:
Como LATINA orgullosa de mis raices, cultura y todo lo q hemos contribuido a esta nacion, he decidido cancelar mi participacion como co host en el certamen Miss USA. No tolero las palabras tan irrespetuosas e hirientes que salieron de la boca del señor Trump. Parece mentira que en un discurso para anunciar su candidatura haya tenido ese lapso de inteligencia y decencia. Los mexicanos al igual que todo hermano latino si contribuye de manera positiva a esta gran nacion. Somos la fuerza que mantiene este pais a flote. Estaba muy entusiasmada y agradecida de la oportunidad de servir como co animadora de este gran evento en el cual muchas latinas han brillado, pero mas me entusiasma tener lealtad con mi gente. Ya basta del racismo y de personas "influyentes" de menospreciarnos.

Trump responded by saying Univision “cares more about Mexico.”
.@Univision cares far more about Mexico than it does about the U.S. Are they controlled by the Mexican government?

Then he claimed Univision reporter Jorge Ramos was “begging” to meet with him.
Trump also plans on suing Univision for backing out of its contract. Trump’s lawyer, Michael Rosen: “The lawsuit is going to be for hundreds of millions of dollars.”
Oh, and he also told Univision that they can’t use his golf course.

Dear Donald Trump,
My daughter is half Mexican. It seems like her only "problem" is that she speaks 2 languages and she's not even 3!
