Donald Trump officially crowned the new Miss USA Wednesday in New York City. (Nana was first runner-up in the pageant, but took over that tile after 2012 Miss USA Olivia Culpo won the Miss Universe Crown at December’s glorious pageant.) Donald, who owns the Miss Universe organization, gushed to E! News about Nana and the other exemplary women in the competition.
“They’re brilliant, they’re really into charity and the world of charity, and they’re phenomenal people,” he said. “They’re very solid. In many cases, they went to the best colleges. In the case of Nana, she was a great athlete—a volleyball player [at UCLA]. “
