Trump's defiant response to ESPN, NASCAR: 

Donald is laughing all the way to the bank

By John Strege

The Donald Trump fall-out from comments he made recently about issues with illegal immigration and immigrants from Mexico in particular continued on Tuesday, to which Trump responded in a manner consistent with how he has always countered critics: Head on and without apology.
Trump issued the following statement regarding ESPN electing to relocate its Celebrity Golf Classic from Trump National Los Angeles to Pelican Hill on the Orange County coast, south of Los Angeles, on top of NASCAR’s recent announcement that it was pulling its post-season award banquet from Trump National Doral in Miami:
In another announcement on Tuesday, the PGA of America said it would relocate its PGA Grand Slam of Golf from Trump National Golf Club Los Angeles.
The LPGA, meanwhile, announced that it was too late to consider a change of venue for its Ricoh Women’s British Open at Trump Turnberry in Scotland.

Real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said in his campaign kickoff speech that some Mexican immigrants to the U.S. bring drugs and crime, and some are rapists. He has been widely criticized for his June 16 statement, but he has refused to apologize and instead repeated his views.
 A host of organizations and countries are re-examining or severing their relationships with Trump and businesses connected to him, and their ranks are growing.
