The Miss USA pageant, scheduled for July 12, will no longer air on the network. Nor will the Miss Universe pageant, scheduled for next January. Both pageants were, until now, jointly owned by NBC and Trump. Both the hosts of the pageant Ms. Cheryl Burke and Mr. Thomas Robert will not be hosting the Miss USA pageant.
“At NBC, respect and dignity for all people are cornerstones of our values,” the company said in a statement on Monday. “Due to the recent derogatory statements by Donald Trump regarding immigrants, NBCUniversal is ending its business relationship with Mr. Trump.”

Speaking to reporters after a campaign event in Chicago, Trump said he had enjoyed a “great” relationship with NBC but would not back down on his views about immigration. Trump told CNN correspondent Athena Jones that he may sue NBC.

Last week, Univision announced it was cancelling plans to air the Miss USA pageant next month and the Miss Universe competition next January.
