The U.S. businessman Donald Trump is just stumped in words by Ricky Martin. The 43-year old Spanish singer has slammed Trump over his disrespectful words he made about Mexicans in America during the launch of his 2016 presidential campaign on June 16 this year. Read on.

Ricky Martin expressed his feelings about Trump’s latest speech. His tweet translates as “There’s much hatred and ignorance in your heart @realDonaldTrump.”

Martin remarked on Twitter just after the announcement of Univison not to air Miss USA pageant. It was due to Trump’s controversial comments on immigrants. Univision representatives said that the broadcaster is ready to cut ties to both the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, which are owned by Trump. Columbian star J Balvin also terminated his Miss USA performance.

“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. Thank you. It’s true, and these are the best and the finest. When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They are sending people that have lots of problems and they are bringing those problems with us,” said Trump in his presidential campaign, as published by the US Weekly.

“They are bringing drugs. They are bringing crime. They are rapists. And some, I assume, are good people,” Trump added.

Despite lots of criticisms, Trump is hardly in a state to show regret or apologize to the community for his remarks.

Instead, he counterattacked the Univision by threatening legal action. In an interview with New York Post, Trump said that he intends to sue the broadcaster with ‘a major lawsuit.’ It was because he would not be silenced, unlike a politician, when speaking up for America.

“I love Mexico but not the unfair trade deals that the U.S. so stupidly makes with them. Really bad for U.S. jobs, only good for Mexico,” Trump said in his tweet.

He also tried to elaborate through his tweet that he is not allowed by the Mexican government to talk about terrible border situation and horrible trade deals.
