Reacting faster than they are sometimes known to, NBC announced this week that they would also cut ties with Donald Trump, no longer airing his Miss USA pageant and dropping him as host of Celebrity Apprentice. Macy's will also stop selling his menswear line. The decisions to part ways with Trump come after the presidential hopeful called Mexican immigrants "rapists" during a public address. Trump now says he is suing Univision, the first network to drop him, for $500 million. His Miss USA pageant will still have a TV presence though. The independent cable network REELZ acquired the rights to the pageant and will air it on July 12.
