Philippine bet Nicole Cordoves was booed by some spectators watching the 2016 Miss Grand International live at the Westgate International Theater in Las Vegas on Tuesday night (Wednesday in Manila).
This, after the Filipina beauty chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton when asked during the question and answer segment who between the two she would prefer to join her in stopping war and violence.
Cordoves said she would choose Trump because “if we choose him to switch to our side, there won’t be war and violence anymore.”
“I will also make sure that he will read my speeches to stop the war and violence because imagine someone who would bring so much madness and so much emotion to these people, what if we use his voice to actually do good for the world? What if we use that for our advantage?” she added.
To end her answer, Cordoves said: “Let’s keep the peace and let Donald Trump switch to our side to stop the war and violence.”
Cordoves finished first runner-up in the 2016 Miss Grand International pageant.
Indonesia’s Ariska Putri Pertiwi was crowned as this year’s winner of the four-year old pageant.
Meanwhile, contestants from Thailand, Puerto Rico and the United States finished second, third and fourth runners-up, respectively.
