Pres.-elect Donald Trump met with Univision President & CEO Randy Falco and Isaac Lee, Chief News, Entertainment and Digital Officer for Univision at Trump Tower late today

“We just had a productive meeting with President-elect Donald Trump about issues facing Hispanic and multicultural communities in America,” a Univision spokesperson says. “We look forward to working with Mr. Trump and his administration to make our vibrant country even better. ”

Trump and Univision have a contentious history. Not long after he announced his candidacy in 2015, during which he made derogatory remarks about Mexicans, Univision cut its business ties with Trump. Trump then sued the network for $500 million. A few months later, Trump kicked Univision News anchor Jorge Ramos out of a news event. In February, the two sides settled and Trump even promised an interview to Ramos (which never materialized.)

“Our Univision News team will continue to cover the Trump administration with the rigor that we have brought to the coverage of every administration that preceded it,” says Univision. “We approach this task without fear or favor and with one goal only – to ensure our audience is well-informed. Our eyes, ears and minds are wide open.”
