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

    The network 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. Miss USA has aired on NBC since 2003, and this year's edition was set for July 12.

    "At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values," NBC said in a statement.

    Trump's reply: a "weak" NBC should prepare to meet him in court

    He was planning to leave anyway. I don't think it will keep him up at night.

    I heard his comments on the day he announced his candidacy, and what surprised me was how long it took to snowball. I would've expected NBC to cut ties with him that day, but they waited and eventually followed the lead of Spanish speaking TV station. I applaud the Latino community and ultimately NBC for firing him. I'd be less surprised if he ended up in a federal prison before he ended up in a federal office. He's just so greedy and unscrupulous and comes off like someone who thinks he's above the law.

    I can hardly wait to see what he does in presidential debates.
