Trump launches harsh new fat attack on ex-Miss Universe

Agence France-Presse . Washington

Fresh off his presidential clash with Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump doubled down Tuesday on criticism of a former Miss Universe he accused of getting too fat, comments that could repel women voters.
Alicia Machado, who won the crown in 1996, has accused Trump – whose company owned the Miss Universe pageant until last year – of calling her ‘Miss Piggy’ and ‘Miss Housekeeping,’ and publicly humiliating her over her post-victory weight gain.
The morning after Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, invoked Machado’s experience as an example of how the brash Republican billionaire treats women, he lashed out at the beauty queen.
