Does Donald Trump Own the Miss Universe Competition?
Although the 70-year-old president used to own the franchise, which includes Miss Universe, Miss USA, and Miss Teen USA, he no longer has involvement with the program and hasn’t for several years.
According to Variety, Donald sold the rights to WME/IMG for an undisclosed amount back in September 2015.
Prior to the sale, NBC, the network which had aired the show, severed ties with the organization due to Donald‘s offensive comments about Mexican immigrants.
Miss Universe will air on FOX on Sunday (January 29) at 7 PM EST.
