Trump, who has previously threatened legal action against NBC and Univision for nearly half a billion (!) dollars over the pageants in question, commented on the quick re-sale of the pageant property he had worked so hard to own outright, saying:
"I have truly enjoyed owning the Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA pageants. When I purchased the pageants many years ago, they were in serious trouble. It has been a great honor making them so successful and I have really enjoyed watching the pageants grow throughout the USA and worldwide. The pageants are now in the hands of a great company that will shepherd them to even greater levels of success."
Considering Trump has owned the Miss Universe properties for so long (he first bought a stake in 1996), it will be crazy to think that after 20 years, the pageant group — which includes Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA — will be completely out from underneath his control.
Meanwhile, Trump's Presidential candidacy continues, and celebs are sounding off about it!
The response seems to be pretty somber as some of our culture's biggest influencers decide whether we should rally behind Drumpf in hopes he does better than expected... or fight against his administration with everything we have.
