This may not actually be the best of times for the President of The United States of America Donald Trump , who is currently engulfed in a sex scandal with porn star, Stormy Daniels.
In another developing story, a former Miss Universe Alicia Machado has come out to make a claim that the most powerful man in the world had tried to have sex with her.
The Venezuelan ex-beauty queen said she knew the US president very well but had resisted his advances.
She told Suelta La Sopa, a show on American Spanish-language TV network Telemundo, she became Trump’s “guinea pig” after he bought the Miss Universe Organisation the year she was crowned in 1996 after winning Miss Venezuela a year earlier.
She claimed he had “disrespected” an existing contract she had signed with the owners of the beauty pageant countless times.
Asked by her interviewer if she knew Trump intimately after claiming to know him very well, she said: “No, I know him as a person. I think that’s worse.
“Often you can sleep with someone you don’t know. It wasn’t the case with me. I never had sex with him.”
Questioned on whether Trump had tried to get her into bed, she replied: “There were many situations with him I have never spoken about.”
The reporter then repeated: “He tried it on” in what appeared to be half statement half question, with Alicia replying: “Well, yes, why would I say ‘no’ to you.”
Donald Trump got into a war of words with Alicia last year during the US presidential campaign after she came out in support of Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton .
The 41-year-old, now a US citizen, claimed Trump had once called her ‘Miss Piggy’ after she put on weight as Miss Universe and ‘Miss Housekeeping’ because she was born in Venezuela.
She branded him a racist and said she had developed eating disorders because a ‘powerful man’ had told her she was fat.
Trump responded by calling Machado the worst Miss Universe ever and claiming she had an attitude problem.
