Miss Philippines Nicole Cordoves bagged first runner-up in Miss Grand International 2016 that was held at the Westgate International Theatre in Las Vegas on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). Although Miss Indonesia won the title, this was the closest a Filipina could have won the crown.
In the final Q&A, the candidates were asked whether they were pro-Donald Trump or they were in the side of Hillary Clinton in the upcoming USA elections to which she answered, “Okay, you have to promise me that you would react after my first sentence. I would choose Donald Trump to stop the war and violence with me because if we choose him to switch to our side there won’t be war and violence anymore. So, 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 from these people. what if we use his voice to actually do good for the world? What if we use that to our advantage? That’s why let’s keep the peace and let Donald Trump switch to our side to stop the war and violence.”
