NBC chief Robert Greenblatt makes quip about Donald Trump at Latino conference

Robert Greenblatt took part in a keynote Q&A with NHMC President Alex Nogales at the conference, held Thursday in Universal City, where he discussed Latinos on TV and his efforts to advance their presence. Before his introduction, Greenblatt was heralded by NHMC Executive Vice President and general counsel Jessica Gonzalez for NBC’s decision to cut business ties with Trump after the real estate mogul and presidential candidate made inflammatory remarks about Mexican immigrants. The praise for Greenblatt was echoed by Nogales at the top of the interview. But Greenblatt did little more than say “thank you” in addressing the situation. That is, until a cellphone rang. And rang. And rang. “That’s Donald Trump calling,” Greenblatt joked amid the interruption. “He’s going to sue every one of you.” To which Nogales quipped: “I’m expecting a call from Donald Trump.”
