NEW YORK (AP) -- You're fired! That's NBC's message for The Donald. The network is cutting all business ties to Donald Trump. NBC is pulling the plug on the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants. The move follows Trump's comments about Mexican immigrants made during his announcement that he's running for the GOP presidential nomination. NBC and producer Mark Burnett are exploring ways to continue "Celebrity Apprentice" with a new host. Trump counters that NBC is "is weak, and like everybody else is trying to be politically correct." Trump says he might sue the network. During his presidential kickoff speech, Trump said Mexican immigrants are "bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists and some, I assume, are good people."

-- "Is it true that you're actually just a burlap sack full of bad ideas and spiders?"

-- "When do you think your writer's block will kick in? Signed Ev R Hopeful"

-- "Did you use a blow up doll as your characterization inspiration for Ana?"
