In a recent interview with Inside Edition the Venezuelan recalls the way the presumptive GOP nominee allegedly treated her following her weight gain, telling the series that Trump called the then 19-year-old “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.”
“For sure he is not a good person,” she added.
According to Inside Edition, the presidential hopeful urged Michado to lose weight, going as far as calling her “an eating machine” during an appearance on Howard Stern’s radio show and even taking her to work out at gym in front of the media.
“She weighed 118 pounds or 117 pounds and she went to 160 or 170. So this is somebody that likes to eat,” he told the press at the time.
The beauty queen continued in her interview, telling Inside Edition that his comments made her feel “so fat” and “very depressed,” causing her to struggle with eating disorders for years, which required therapy.
Michado who is now 39, is reportedly on the path to becoming an American citizen and will be done with the process in time to vote in this year’s election in November. However, when asked if Trump would be getting her vote, she laughed.
Her accusations come on the heels of a recent New York Times article that highlighted Trump’s past history with women, often times accusing him of crossing the line.
Trump’s ex-girlfriend Rowanne Brewer Lane, who was a major source in the article, defended the presidential candidate after the article was published, saying that the newspaper “spun” comments she made about her first meeting with the billionaire businessman.
“I did not have a negative experience with Donald Trump,” Brewer Laneclarified in an appearance on Fox & Friends two days after the article hit newsstands. “And I don’t appreciate them making it look like that.”
Less than an hour after her appearance, Trump took to Twitter, hitting back at the Times himself.
“The @nytimes is so dishonest,” he tweeted. “Their hit piece cover story on me yesterday was just blown up by Rowanne brewer, who said it was a lie.”
