Ugly Allegations

Report: Trump Vetoed Dark-Skinned Women If There Were ‘Too Many’ at Miss Universe Pageants

Donald Trump’s 2013 trip to Russia for the Miss Universe pageant has been the subject of intense speculation since Christopher Steele’s leaked dossier alleged the future president got up to some fairly unhygienic nocturnal activities in his hotel suite. An excerpt from the upcoming book Russian Roulette by Michael Isikoff and David Corn has revealed more shocking allegations from the world of pageants, including claims from two former Miss Universe staffers that Trump would exercise a personal veto over beauty entrants if he thought there were too many dark-skinned women. “If there were too many women of color, he would make changes,” said the anonymous staffer. Another added: “He had a particular type of woman he thought was a winner. Others were too ethnic,” and said Trump would also veto women “who had snubbed his advances.” The report also gives a tantalizing detail on the bromance between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, saying that once Trump returned to New York from Moscow he found an intriguing gift. “It was a black lacquered box,” according the report. “Inside was a sealed letter from the Russian autocrat. What the letter said has never been revealed.”
