Univision will "pay a very big price" for dropping the Miss Universe Pageant over his comments on illegal immigrants, Donald Trump tells Newsmax TV.
In an interview set to air Monday on a special edition of "Newsmax Prime," Trump tells host J.D. Hayworth that the Spanish-language cable channel is owned by supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
Here is a preview. The full interview airs at 11 pm EDT Monday.

"These are people who are big supporters of Hillary and Obama, and, maybe even importantly, they have had tremendous pressure put on them because you know we have a signed contract," Trump says.
He has promised to sue Univision because it and Trump, who owns the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants, have a five-year deal.
Trump is running for president as a Republican and angered immigration supporters when he said in his official announcement last week, "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists."
Trump says he loves Mexico and its people, but tells Newsmax that Univision wants him to be quiet about immigration problems.
"If you look at how Mexico is ripping us off in trade, ripping us off at the border, I exposed it, and because of that Univision sent us a notice saying they can't even do it," he says. "I have a fantastic lawsuit. I'll sue them for a lot of money and that's fine, but they wanted me to be silent and I can't be silent."
Trump also discusses the Supreme Court decision announced Thursday that ruled people in states that use the federal health care exchange can continue to receive subsidies.
The people of the country were the losers, he says, and urges anyone upset with Chief Justice John Roberts to consider the decision when casting their vote for president.
"Justice Roberts was wanted very badly by Jeb Bush. He was pushing him very hard," Trump says. "Justice Roberts is why we have this horrible thing called Obamacare."
President George W. Bush appointed Roberts at his brother Jeb's urging, Trump says.
"He was an appointee by President Bush, pushed very hard by Jeb Bush, and people should remember this when they're thinking about voting for Jeb Bush."
