Donald Trump and Univision have settled their legal fight over Univision’s decision to drop the Miss USA and Miss Universe telecasts last year after Trump made disparaging remarks about Mexican immigrants.
Trump had sued the broadcaster for $500 million after it severed ties with the businessman and refused to broadcast the pageant. The terms of the settlement were confidential, according to a news release.
“I have known Univision’s President and CEO, Randy Falco, for more than 20 years and I’m glad we are able to put these differences behind us,” Trump said in a statement.
Falco had a similar response.
“I have known Donald Trump for many years in both a personal and professional capacity and we are pleased to settle this matter and move forward,” he said in a statement.
Univision refused to air the pageant in June after Trump called Mexican immigrants drug addicts and rapists. Trump, who had been a co-owner of the pageant organization, then bought the full rights to the pageant from NBC Universal, but soon after a talent agency and marketing firm acquired it from Trump.
