Roselyn Sanchez Steps Down As MISS USA Co-Host After Donald Trump’s Immigrant Comments
Oh Donald, please stop talking.
Roselyn Sanchez has stepped down from her position as co-host of the MISS USA competition after Donald Trump’s latest antics. According to E News,
Sanchez took to Facebook to address bowing out of the pageant in Spanish, which loosely translates to, “As a Latina, proud of my roots, culture and all that we have contributed to this nation, I decided to cancel my participation as co–host the Miss USA pageant. Not tolerate the so disrespectful and hurtful words out of the mouthof Mr. Trump.
“It seems incredible that in his speech to announce his candidacy, has had that lapse of intelligence and decency. Mexicans, like all Latinos, contribute positively to this great nation. We are the force that keeps the country afloat. I was very excited and grateful for the opportunity to serve as co-host of this great event in which many Latinas have shown, but more excited I have loyalty to my people.Enough of racism and “influential” people belittling us. Univision, thanks for having me and for honoring your audience and cutting relationship with everything that has to do with Trump.“
Sanchez was, of course, referring to Trump’s comments in his June 16 presidential-bid speech, where he said, “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. 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 […] It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably—probably—from the Middle East.”
Sanchez isn’t the only one jumping ship. Her co-host Cristian De La Fuente and Univision have also pulled out. Someone please tell Mr. Trump to stop talking. Thanks!
