CHICAGO (AP) – Donald Trump says he’ll consider suing after NBC announced it’s ending its business relationship with the Republican presidential candidate over comments he made about immigrants during his campaign kickoff.

Trump told reporters after a City Club of Chicago speech Monday that he’s not apologizing for claiming some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the country. He says if his “strong stance” on immigration fuels NBC’s decision, he’s fine with it. He’s considering suing.

Last week, Univision announced it was canceling coverage of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. Trump plans to sue.

NBC said it’d no longer air the pageants, which had been a joint venture with Trump. Trump has said he’s no longer appearing on “The Apprentice” reality show. NBC said “Celebrity Apprentice” will continue without him.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
