MANILA -- Miss Grand International 2016 first runner-up Nicole Cordoves offered to work as a speech writer for US President-elect Donald Trump.

"Hi Donald Trump, please, please hire me as your speech writer. I make good speeches and I will make people like you more," Cordoves said in an interview with ABS-CBN's Mario Dumaual on Thursday.

The beauty queen previously worked as a speech writer for former Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima.

Cordoves was booed during the pageant when she said she would chose 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.

On Thursday, Cordoves clarified that she didn't support Trump and that was just talking about fighting war and violence. "It was more of looking at it the context of solving war and violence," she explained.

Asked of her reaction now that Trump won the US elections, Cordoves replied: "Well my answer stays the same, it's fighting war and violence still. But you know with Trump, we should try to be optimistic. We shouldn't like, you know, that America is divided between Clinton and Trump. So we shouldn't let that tear us apart. Sana hindi siya magresulta to more war."
