As if running for president of the United States of America wasn't enough, now Donald Trump has added a multimillion-dollar lawsuit to his 2015 to-do list.
Following the massive fallout from comments he made about Mexican immigrants during his candidacy announcement, Spanish-language network Univision quickly broke ties with Trump's Miss Universe Organization – followed by NBC and Macy's – leading the real estate tycoon to announce a $500 million lawsuit against Univision on Tuesday.
"We have a very strong lawsuit," Trump tells PEOPLE. "We had a binding contract that they illegally broke."

The show must go on.
The Miss USA Pageant will take place as planned in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on July 12 despite NBC's decision not to air the competition following Donald Trump's controversial comments about Mexicans. There's no word on what network, if any, will air the beauty queen competition.
"The Miss Universe Organization is built on a foundation of inclusion and continues to be a celebration of diversity and of all cultures," the group said in a statement Tuesday. "This year's Miss USA contestants represent many different ethnic backgrounds, including six Latinas (four of whom are of Mexican descent)."
Trump, who co-owns the pageant, is facing backlash after he outlined his immigration stance while announcing his bid for president.
