Mexican Leaders Are More Cunning That U.S. Leaders - Donald Trump

Rupert Murdoch apparently won't be supporting Donald Trump's presidential campaign.

The Australian-born media mogul, who became a U.S. citizen in 1985, on Sunday became the latest to decry the Republican candidate's comments about Mexican immigrants in a message posted to Twitter.



Trump drew the ire of several groups when he said in his announcement speech: "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best; they're not sending you. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

Since then, NBC, Univision and Macy's have cut ties with the mogul. His Miss USA pageant is now set to air on Reelz Channel on Sunday night, although Trump won't be there, he tweeted Saturday.
