ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Businessman and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump arrived in the U.S.-Mexico border town of Laredo, Texas for his "boots on the ground" visit on Thursday, where he accused the media of misinterpreting his comments over illegal immigration. Trump caused an uproar with accusations last month that Mexico sends rapists and other criminals to emigrate to the United States. He has also promised to build a wall on the border and make Mexico pay for it. "We're talking about illegal immigration, everybody understands it," Trump said. "That's a typical case of the press with misinterpretation... They take a half a sentence, then they take a quarter of a sentence, they put it all together. It's a typical thing," he said. "You're with Telemundo, and Telemundo should be ashamed," he told one reporter. "And I'll tell you something. What's really going to be fun, I'm right now suing Univision for $500 million, and I wanna tell ya, we're gonna win a lot of money because of what they did," he added. The TV host is at or near the top of many opinion polls of the 16 Republican candidates for the November, 2016 presidential election, worrying the party establishment, which fears he could turn off moderate voters.
