AceShowbiz - During her appearance on "Suelta La Sopa", Former Miss Universe Alicia Machado claimed that Donald Trump once attempted to sleep with her. On the show on American Spanish-language TV network Telemundo, she also admitted that she became Trump's "guinea pig" after he bought Miss Universe Organization the year she was crowned in 1996 after winning Miss Venezuela a year earlier.
When asked by the interviewer whether or not she knew the president intimately after claiming that she knows him very well, she said, "No, I know him as a person. I think that's worse." She added, "Often you can sleep with someone you don't know. It wasn't the case with me. I never had sex with him."
The interviewer further attempted to obtain clarification of whether or not the President had tried to sleep with Alicia and she replied, "There were many situations with him I have never spoken about." As her response was vague, the interviewer repeated the question which she answered with, "Well, yes, why would I say 'no' to you."
Alicia claimed that Trump frequently "disrespected" an existing contract she signed with the beauty pageant owner. She also stated that Trump once called her "Miss Piggy" after she gained weight as Miss Universe. She later admitted that she developed eating disorders after she was called fat. As she was born in Venezuela, Trump also called Alicia "Miss Housekeeping" that prompted her to brand him a racist.
During the U.S. presidential campaign, Trump and Alicia got into a verbal war after Alicia supported Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton. In a September 27, 2016 segment of "Fox News", Trump gave his comment when asked if Hillary Clinton and her comments got under his skin during the first presidential debate. He answered by describing the moment when Hillary brought up Alicia, and called Alicia "the worst. The absolute worst. She was impossible." He added, "She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem. We had a real problem. Not only that-her attitude... So Hillary went back into the years and she found this-this was many years ago-and found the girl, and talked about her like she was Mother Teresa, and it wasn't quite that way, but that's okay, Hillary has to do what she has to do."
