Instead of continuing the court fight that started with his remarks about illegal immigrants, Donald Trump has gone shopping... and bought a pageant.

FOX News Radio's Rachel Sutherland reports:

The Republican presidential hopeful and business mogul used to co-own the Miss Universe Organization with NBC.

The network dumped Trump when he made these comments about Mexican immigrants...

(Trump) "They're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists and some I assume are good people."

Now, Trump says he bought out NBC's share and now owns the whole pageant.

Meanwhile, Trump is leading a new Quinnipiac University poll in Iowa... showing him with 27% support among likely Republican caucus-goers.
