Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump gestures during a speech to supporters at a rally in Richmond, Va. Oct. 14, 2015. Trump has long boasted about his enormous wealth and how he doesn’t need anyone else’s money to fund his presidential campaign. But that hasn’t stopped tens of thousands of people from across the country from chipping in with small-dollar checks as small as $10 or $25 to let him know that they’re behind him.

Latino groups working with the progressive online activist site MoveOn.org are urging NBC to take back its invitation for Donald Trump to host Saturday Night Live.

The popular weekend sketch show has announced that the Republican presidential candidate will host Saturday Night Live on Nov. 7 – exactly one year from Election Day 2016.

Trump angered Latino activists by characterizing immigrants who enter the U.S. from Mexico as murderers and rapists. Then, when Univision reporter Jorge Ramos confronted him at a press conference, he at first refused to answer and tried to have Ramos ejected.

The National Hispanic Leadership Agenda wrote to NBC Universal CEO Stephen Burke and SNL creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels saying, “we are appalled ... and ask that you rescind the SNL invitation.”
