Transcript for Donald Trump: 'I Have Great Respect for Mexico'
down now in his latest battle which all stems from some inflammatory comments he made about Mexicans during his presidential announcement speech. In fact, he is firing a new salvo against univision, now dropping coverage of the miss usa pageant which the billionaire partly owns and the Donald is coming back swinging. ABC's Tom llamas has been following the story from the beginning and joins us with more. Good morning, Tom. Reporter: Paula and Dan, good morning. Donald Trump tells me he's going to sue univision for violating a multimillion dollar broadcast deal but now making this personal with a letter to the network's boss telling him to stay off his golf course and resort which is very close to univision's headquarters. ? Reporter: This morning, Donald Trump firing back at univision for refusing to broadcast his miss usa telecast. In a letter obtained by ABC news trump tells univision's CEO he and all of his employees are banned from trump's luxurious golf course in dorsal, Florida, this after America's largest Spanish language TV network announced Thursday they're cutting all ties with trump because of comments he made about Mexican immigrants. Is Donald Trump anti-mexican? Absolutely not. I love the Mexican people. I have great respect for Mexico. Reporter: But this is what the republican candidate said when he announced his run for president. When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some, I assume, are good people. Reporter: Overnight, ABC news speaking with Latino singer jay balvin who canceled his performance. I'm disappoints because what he said about Latinos and what he said about the Mexican people it took me not even a second to say we're not going to work with that guy. Do you regret those comments. Not at all. I said it about people all over. I said from people all over. Reporter: The red of the RNC said trump's comments were not helpful. You have to look at every Kate as a package and not everything is going to be I think 100% copacetic. Reporter: Univision called trump's comments insulting. Now, NBC still plans to run the miss usa pageant but says they do not agree with his position on a number of issues including his recent comments on immigration. Guys, August 6th is the first RNC debate. If Donald Trump is polling in the top ten in five polls which he's already doing he'll get a spot on that stage. It'll make an interesting night. To the NBC guys, they can play golf at trump's resort. They're still allowed on the golf course. You, Dan Harris, you want -- Dan doesn't play golf. Dan will drive the cart. Or caddie. Thank you very much, Tom.
