Donald Trump and his feud with the Latin community see no sign of slowing down. His newest target hits current Miss Universe Paulina Vega, calling the beauty queen a “hypocrite.”
Current Miss Universe title holder, Vega, is the latest to take bitter comments from Trump. Since his announcement about running for the presidential chair in the White House, Trump has created dispute between him and the Latin population due to his racist and harsh comments.
Fox News Latino reported that the billionaire businessman called Vega “hypocrite” after the beauty queen criticized him about his rude comments on illegal immigration.
“Miss Universe, Paulina Vega, criticized me for telling the truth about illegal immigration, but then said she would keep the crown – Hypocrite,” Trump posted on his Twitter account over the weekend.
The Colombian beauty is the recent addition to the growing personalities who are turning their backs and showing disapproval of the business mogul’s remarks about Mexico.
“I find Mr. Trump’s comments unjust and hurtful. As a Colombian and as Miss Universe, I want to show my support and validate the sentiments of the Latin community,” said Paulina in one of her Instagram posts.
However, Trump’s “hypocrite” comment is caused by the beauty queen’s decision to keep her title despite being pressured by fans from home and abroad to give it up. She added that she will keep the Miss Universe title because of the meaningful works the Miss Universe organization is doing in communities all around the world.
“The Miss Universe Organization works independently from its owners. For the past 64 years, they have created partnerships with great charity groups and have helped thousands of communities. Their legacy of uniting countries from around the world has been inspiring to many. If the Miss Universe Organization shared any anti-Latin sentiments or any type of racial biases, I wouldn’t be in this position today,” Vega stated.
According to Business Insider, Trump has been under fire ever since he made harsh comments about Mexico and its people. During his campaign launch, he claimed that Mexico is sending “rapists” and drugs to the United States.
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said. “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”
Instead of apologizing for what he said, Trump aggressively attacked his critics. He called NBC “weak” and is suing Univision $500 million because the company decided to cut business ties with him.
