MEXICO CITY (AP) - Julio Iglesias has jumped into the U.S. political debate, calling Donald Trump “a clown” over the Republican presidential candidate’s derogatory comments about Mexican migrants.

The singer says he will no longer perform in casinos owned by the real estate tycoon. He says Trump is forgetting what immigrants have done for the United States.

In an interview with the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia, Iglesias says of Trump: “He’s a clown. I have sung many times in his casinos, but I will no longer do it.”

Iglesias is in Mexico for a couple of concerts before he begins a tour of Asia.
