Miss Teen USA 2010 winner Kamie Crawford took to Twitter on Wednesday to spill the tea on her experience with Donald Trump. And it was some hot tea, indeed.
“As the first WOC to win the title in almost a decade, I was forewarned prior to meeting him that, ‘Mr. Trump doesn’t like black people. So don’t take it the wrong way if he isn’t extremely welcoming towards you. If he is then you just might be the ‘type’ of black he likes,'” she tweeted.
Her tweets come after former contestants revealed their own stories regarding Trump’s conduct during his run as owner of the Miss USA pageant. In released audio from Howard Stern’s radio show in 2005, Trump bragged about how he used his position of power to peek at women while they were undressed.

“I’ll go backstage before a show and everyone’s getting dressed and ready and everything else. And you know, no men are anywhere. And I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant. And therefore, I’m inspecting it. You know I’m inspecting it. I want to make sure everything is good,” Trump told Stern at the time. “You know they’re standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women. And so I sort of get away with things like that.”
Former Miss Arizona 2001 competitor Tasha Dixon came forward Wednesday and confirmed the GOP nominee entered changing rooms while her fellow contestants were getting ready.
As for Crawford, she says Trump took a liking to her – since she was obviously the type of Black he liked – and showed her off to his friends who came to gawk at the contestants. She was 17.
“This man is running for president of country with all “types” of Black,” she tweeted, adding: “Vote on November 8th if you don’t wanna find out what his type ‘isn’t.'”
