Republican presidential candidate and business mogul Donald Trump filed a $500 million lawsuit against Univision Tuesday in response to the broadcaster’s decision to cut ties with him and the Miss Universe pageant over remarks he made about Mexican immigration.

The Spanish language station made the decision to terminate the contract with the Miss Universe Organization, and not to air the July 12 Miss USA contest, after comments Trump made in a June 16 campaign speech in which he said Mexico brings drug dealers, criminals and rapists into America.
