Book Says Trump Would Cut Miss Universe Contestants Who Were 'Too Ethnic'


And during Trump's almost 20 years with Miss Universe, multiple pageants were hosted in cities where Trump had business ties and several finalists were from countries where ratings were consistently high, according to the New Yorker. At least that's what former aide Sam Nunberg said in a string of unhinged interviews he gave on Monday after getting a subpoena.

President Donald Trump reportedly received a letter from Russian President Vladimir Putin as a gift in 2013, and its contents remain a mystery.

Trump, who owned the pageant, wrote the note at a time when he was looking to expand his brand to Russian Federation - and it's now in the hands of special counsel Robert Mueller, who's investigating Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, the Post reported. It is unclear whether Trump's missive was ever delivered to the Russian president - and if so, whether Putin responded. Mueller has also looked into Trump's relationship with Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov, who attended the pageant and has connections to the Kremlin.

But a year ago, The Post reported that Felix Sater, a real estate developer with a checkered past, sent an email to then-Executive Vice President of the Trump Organization Michael Cohen in November 2015 in which he indicated that a plan to construct a Moscow Trump Tower was moving forward, and bragged that they would soon be celebrating not just the completion of the tower, but also Trump's victory in the presidential election.

"He often thought a woman was too ethnic or too dark-skinned", a pageant staffer said,"he had a particular type of woman he thought was a victor".

Later that night, Trump had dinner with the Agalarovs and a few others.

Investigators for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III have asked witnesses questions about the Miss Universe pageant and Trump's interest in having Putin attend the event, according to people familiar with the inquiry. Days later, he met with the lawyer at Trump Tower in NY.

Trump said, however, that Peskkov tried to make amends by extending an invitation from Putin to attend the upcoming Olympic Games so they could finally meet.

Colorado's unemployment rate in January remained below the national rate
In February, the USA economy added 313,000 new payroll jobs, the biggest single monthly increase since July 2016. The Nebraska Labor Department says the preliminary January unemployment rate matched the 2.9 percent of December.

By that time, Russian Federation was widely suspected of stealing emails from the Democratic National Committee, which had been published by WikiLeaks.

"We all knew that the event was approved by Putin", the official said.

The following month, at a campaign rally in Wisconsin, Trump defended himself from criticism from Clinton that he wanted to befriend Putin: "I'm saying to myself, what's wrong with that?"
