(Sputnik) – Russian Miss Universe 2002, Oxana Fedorova, has said that amid the US presidential campaign the Western media annoyed her by asking for damaging information to defame the now current President-Elect of the United States, Donald Trump.
“During the election campaign I was often bothered by various international media that tried to find some loophole and defame him, but I had only positive, favorable impression after interacting and working with him. Trump acquitted himself as a man of worth with open mind. Trump has a great family, kids,” Fedorova told Ria Novosti.
Trump, who owned the Miss Universe beauty-contest brand from 1996 to 2015, took care of her and was interested in her travels, she said. “His attendant, by the way, she was Russian, said that she worked with him for 35 years, and that tells a lot,” Fedorova added.
Fedorova stated that it is strange to perceive Trump as the president. “I want to wish him success. What the term will be like, time will tell. I hope he will bring more benefits than his forerunners,” she said.
Unlike Fedorova, Alicia Machado, 1996 Miss Universe, earlier presented damaging evidence, claiming that Trump hurt her feelings by criticizing her weight publicly a year after her victory. The accusations were used by opponent Hillary Clinton during the first debate, citing Trump’s name-calling of “Miss Housekeeping” to refer to Machado’s Latina origins.
Trump won the US election on November, 8. The inauguration is slated for January, 20. Hillary Clinton acknowledged defeat and congratulated Trump on his victory.
