In true Donald Trump fashion, the presidential candidate blew off NASCAR and ESPN event cancellations at properties he owns following his remarks on illegal immigration as he would be saving money. That’s not to mention, it appears as if both organizations have shot themselves in the proverbial foot, just to maintain political correctness.

Trump’s full statement reads:
The disassociation of ESPN and NASCAR with the Trump Organization was covered by the press in headlines all over the world as though it was a major setback for me. Really? What were the losses? One NASCAR banquet in a magnificent ballroom at Trump National Doral in Miami for which I will keep their very substantial deposit and rent the ballroom to someone else that night––in other words, two fees instead of one (NASCAR has already apologized to me)! In the case of ESPN, they cancelled a simple golf outing at my course, Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, perhaps the most valuable parcel of land in all of golf. Likewise, they lost a large deposit. I will now let people use the course on that day, receiving substantial additional greens fee income. Again, I get two fees instead of one. This is the big deal built up by the press on ESPN and NASCAR––a banquet and a golf outing. Headlines blared all over the world, “ESPN and NASCAR Dropping Trump”––Give me a break! All of this because of my strong stance on illegal immigration during my run for President…Make America Great Again!
Boom! Game, set, and match to the presidential candidate.

The more people learn and hear from Donald Trump, the more people like and understand he’s running for office with no issues on calling things how he sees them — plus he’s not going to be bought or controlled by outside forces.
The media has little or no credibility because they report on what they favor and ignore news unfavorable to their progressive agenda. Most people appreciate fairness and balance in the news but they’re not getting it from the liberal media.
