A high-profile Latino group is calling on more companies to boycott Donald Trump over his controversial comments about Mexican immigrants.
During a discussion with NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt, president of the National Hispanic Media Coalition Alex Nogales thanked Greenblatt for NBC’s decision to end its relationship with Trump.
He also said the PGA of America’s decision to change the location of one of its tournaments from a Trump-owned course was a good first step.
But Nogales suggested more companies need to cut ties with Trump, who has doubled down on his comments about illegal Mexican immigrants in various TV interviews.
Among Trump’s statements, he said during his presidential announcement last month, “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
“The Latino community has finally come to a maturation tipping point,” Nogales said. “We’re not going to take it anymore, and we don’t have to.”
