Donald Trump And Univision Kiss And Make Up Over Miss USA Pageant

Republican front runner Donald Trump and Spanish language network Univision have come to a meeting of the minds regarding ongoing litigation between the two over the network's move to not air the pageant last year.

Univision made it's decision after Trump called hispanics "drug addicts" and "rapists" during his campaign launch.

From Talking Points Memo:

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.
