Trump sends scathing letter to CEO, bans Univision employees from his Miami resort


ABC US News | World News

Donald Trump has taken the gloves off in his feud with Univision.

The feud between the Republican presidential candidate and the Spanish-language TV network turned up a notch Friday when the real estate mogul sent a letter informing the media giant that its employees would not be welcome at his Miami golf club.

The letter, delivered to Univision CEO and President Randy Falco, informed him they could not use Trump National Doral Resort and Golf Club, which is adjacent to Univision’s Miami offices, according to Politico.

“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,” Trump’s letter began. “Also, please immediately stop work and close the gate which is being constructed between our respective properties. If this is not done within one week, we will close it.”

He also took a shot at Falco’s management style.

“Also, it’s too bad you didn’t have the courage to call me yourself instead of delegating the task to Beau,” he wrote.

He added a postscript for an extra tweak.

“Please congratulate your Mexican Government officials for having made such outstanding trade deals with the United States,” it read. “However, inform them that should I become President, those days are over. We are bringing jobs back to the U.S. Also, a meaningful border will be immediately created, not the laughingstock that currently exists.”

Univision has decided not to push the issue. It sent a notice to its employees saying, “As part of this decision, [Univision Communications Inc.] employees should not stay at Trump properties while on company business or hold events/activities there.”

The brouhaha between Trump and Univision got off the ground Thursday when the network informed Trump it would no longer air the Miss Universe contest, a move prompted by what it called “insulting remarks about Mexican immigrants” that Trump made during his address announcing his presidential bid.

The Miss Universe Organization is jointly owned by Trump and NBC-Universal.

Trump fired back with a multimillion-dollar lawsuit, alleging defamation and breach of an “iron-clad” $13.5 million contract.

Alberto Ciurana, Univision’s president of programming, ratcheted the feud into the stratosphere when he posted on his Instagram account a split image comparing Trump to Dylann Roof, the white supremacist accused of murdering nine people in Charleston, South Carolina.

Ciurana later deleted the photo after receiving flak, but by that time the damage was done — it was being displayed everywhere on the Internet.

Trump accused Univision of bending to pressure “put on them by various sources in Mexico” during an interview with On Media Blog on Thursday.

“The Mexican government is putting pressure on Univision to get me to stop exposing the weaknesses the U.S. has at the Southern border,” he said during the interview, citing his claims that U.S. leaders were “incompetent” on trade with Mexico, allowing the country to take advantage of the U.S., and that the Southern border “is a sieve” that “illegals are pouring through.”

“The government of Mexico and the lobbyists and the special interests have put tremendous pressure on Univision, a company that is very subservient to Mexico, to get Trump to stop exposing the terrible situation at the border and the terrible trade deals that are being made by the United States to the benefit of Mexico,” he said. “I will not be party to that, because my love of the country is too great to allow this to happen.”

    2. Doug_723 says:

      So why is it you think the Donald is scum of the Earth?

    3. Disabled Marine SSGT says:

      WOW! Powerful statement. He doesn’t have YOUR vote so he will lose. LOL LOL LOL……

      1. zippinglou says:

        How many companies gave backed out from doing business with him? The numbers climbs each passing day… So, LOL to you!

        1. Disabled Marine SSGT says:

          Actually it’s 3 with one thinking about it. Don’t you realize he knew that was going to happen before he ever said that? Don’t you know that every time someone pulls their contract his numbers go up. Just because a mexican TV station will not run one of his pageants proves how absolutely correct his words are. Liberals do not run the country, the hell with them and their agenda.

          I’ll take Trump over most other candidates in either party any day.

          1. zippinglou says:

            His numbers will plateau quickly. The few that are willing to hand the Republican nomination to a bigot who does not have a real platform and plan of action are already with him. No one else will join that circus – at least not anyone in their right mind.
            His campaign may need to orchestrate more “random” shootings by illegals, House of Cards style politics, in order to remain relevant.

          2. Disabled Marine SSGT says:

            You may or may not be right. But just for grins, who would you rather be in his place and with great details. Who knows, you may swing me your way.

            The Trump “brand” continuous to take a major hit. NACAR just joined… More to come!

          4. Disabled Marine SSGT says:

            This seems so important to voice your joy at companies backing out on trump. You must be a very lonely and strange person.

            Every night Trump gets on his knees and prays, “Father in heaven, thank you for helping me become a billionaire, A’men.” Then he laughs out loud and gets a nice restful nights sleep with no worries in the world.

          5. zippinglou says:

            He must not believe too much in God. He has too much hate in him.

          6. Disabled Marine SSGT says:

            You are a total coward hiding behind a profile with nothing in it. That’s what cowards do and you are a coward. You enjoy punching at Trump a better man than you will ever be, if you are even a man.

            You say Trump must not know God. What makes anyone think you do? You are packed full of more evil hatred than anyone I’ve communicated with.

            And with that, I say goodbye loser.

          7. zippinglou says:

            Takes one to know one…. Coming by from a marine who used to hide in the trenches while his peers fought!

          8. Disabled Marine SSGT says:

            Takes one to know one… WOW! How profound and original. How old are you, 12?

            I suspect everything you know about the Armed Forces came from old John Wayne movies. He, like you, was also a draft dodger.

  2. Doug_723 says:

    That he’s going to make an effective border between the US and Mexhellico is just ONE reason to vote for the Donald!!!

  7. L0525111 says:

    I LOVE IT!

  8. Marilynrae says:

    Good for Trump. I like his no nonsense approach to our problems. We hear how bad the conditions are in Mexico and those Central american countries and those illegals have to come here for a better life, which I knew wasn’t true, here is a survey I just read which shows they are more satisfied with their country than citizens of the US are. Interesting read!! http://www.businessinsider.com/gallup-healthways-2014-well-being-world-map-2015-6
