Donald Trump Fired By NBC After Calling Mexican Immigrants Rapists


“Donald Trump, the fractious real estate mogul, reality TV star and newly announced Republican presidential candidate, spoke to a sold-out City Club luncheon Monday while dealing with fallout from his suggestion that many Mexicans entering the country illegally are ‘rapists.’

Trump entered through a side entrance of Maggiano’s Banquets, 111 W. Grand Ave., as about 100 protesters outside chanted, “Hate speech is not presidential!” The jeers were in response to comments Trump made about Mexicans, calling many undocumented immigrants ‘rapists,’ in his speech declaring himself a Republican presidential candidate.

‘I love Mexico,’ Trump insisted Monday, ‘but every time I talk about it they accuse me of being a racist.’”
