Hillary Clinton has been introduced by former Miss Universe Alicia Machado at a rally in Dade City, Florida.
Alicia Machado, who won the Miss Universe pageant in 1996, said she has lived for 20 years with the agony of what Donald Trump did to her after she won the Miss Universe title: shame her, over and over, for gaining weight.
Their joint appearance comes just a few days after Clinton appeared with women’s rights activists, including Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards, at a campaign event in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
Speaking in a mix of English and Spanish, Alicia Machado addressed Latino voters, saying “this is our election, Latinos!”
“Let’s work our heart out so we can finally say madam president, senora presidenta.”
