Donald Trump did not attend the Miss USA Pageant in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on July 12 and he tweeted his shocking reason why!
There has been a ton of controversy surrounding the Miss USA Pageant after Donald Trump made several offensive remarks about Mexican immigrants. You would think Donald is skipping the pageant because of the major fallout after NBC and Univision backed out of airing the show but he tweeted there’s another reason!The 69-year-old billionaire tweeted: “I will not be able to attend the Miss USA pageant tomorrow night because I am campaigning in Phoenix. Wishing all well!” Donald is campaigning in the presidential race on the Republican ticket but he has upset many people with his comments that Mexicans are “killers” and “rapists.” Immediately after his comments his hosts and judges backed out of attending and the show had to be relocated to the Reelz channel.
But Miss Universe Organization President Paula Shugart claims Donald has skipped the event before: “He has come a lot and there have been several Miss Universe pageants he has not attended and actually I think two or three Miss USA’s he has not attended since I’ve been here.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s strange that Donald didn’t attend?
