Currently, Donald Trump has been accused of calling a former Venezuelan Miss Universe  “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housewife” because of her race. Alicia Machado was the first Miss Universe after Trump bought the Pageant.

Alicia Machado clearly states that when she won Miss Universe in 1969, she was terrified of Donald Trump. He would always make rude comments and say, “You look ugly. You look fat.” She says that he would “play” with her and say,“Hello, Miss Piggy,” or “Hello, Miss Housewife.” She says that he told her these things so often that her self-esteem was on the ground.

Machado gave an “inspirational speech” saying, “No matter what, no matter who tells you that you don’t look good, that is only outside. You are more than some weight. You are more than some phase. You are more than if you are short or tall, or you are black or you are white, or you are skinny or fat or whatever. Your value is how you can work, how you can feel for the people around you.”

On Monday, September 26, during the presidential debate, in the last minutes Hillary Clinton confronted Trump about his comments, and during her final seconds, she had declared that Alicia Machado had become a U.S citizen and she is going to vote this year, and we all know who she’s not voting for. Trump.
