Trump's Pageant Woes Mount With TV and Contestant Drop-outs

Fallout from Donald Trump's remarks about immigrants from Mexico continued Tuesday as a TV company backed by Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim said it was scrapping a project in development with the outspoken mogul, and Mexico announced it won't be sending a contestant to the Miss Universe contest, which Trump partly owns. Last week, Univision announced it was cancelling plans to air the Miss USA pageant next month and the Miss Universe competition next January. NBC followed suit on Monday by saying it would also skip both pageants, which it co-owns with Trump, and would not welcome Trump back to host "The Celebrity Apprentice" upon its scheduled return next season.
