Univision Is No Longer Allowed At Donald Trump Campaign Events

Donald Trump and Univision

Univision has been banned from all Donald Trump campaign events.

A Univision spokesman told CNNMoney on Thursday that “the network’s reporters continue to be denied credentials by Trump’s campaign, nearly two weeks after a flare-up between the two sides.”

Donald Trump is currently involved in a $500 million lawsuit with Univision and a spokeswoman for Trump said the network will be banned until that lawsuit is resolved. The campaign says it would be a “conflict of interest” to grant credentials to Univision reporters at this time.

The Univision lawsuit was prompted by the network’s decision in the summer to withdraw from carrying the Miss Universe pageant, which at the time was owned by Trump.

Univision dropped the pageant after Trump made disparaging remarks about Mexican immigrants during his campaign launch event on June 16.

Univision was first banned during a Donald Trump event that took place on October 23 in Florida. Univision attempted to request press credentials to the Florida campaign event but was denied.

To counter that denial of access Univision has been forced to acquire videos from other news outlets.

The Huffington Post and the Des Moines Register, have also been denied credentials to Trump events

In August, Univision’s Jorge Ramos, the most popular Spanish-language news anchor in America, was booted out of a Trump press conference in Iowa.

Donald Trump has since thrown his support behind the Spanish-speaking TV network Telemundo.
