Trump 'surprised' NASCAR dumped him

Donald Trump has faced a lot of defections in the business world since his inflammatory immigration comments earlier this week, but what appears to have shocked the presidential candidate the most was NASCAR's decision to dump him.

"I was quite surprised by NASCAR because these are people that want to stop illegal immigration and don't want to stop crime," he told Fox & Friends on Saturday.

NASCAR said earlier this week it wouldn't hold its season-ending awards ceremony at Trump National Doral Miami, according to NBC News.

The billionaire entertainer has largely stood by his controversial comments that many Mexican immigrants are "rapists" and are bringing crime and drugs across the border.

He said that this was a safety issue that needs to be addressed, but his stance has been vilified.
