Tara Conner, a former Miss USA in 2006, praised President Trump for his actions a decade earlier when, as the owner of the pageant, he provided her with a life-saving, life-altering, second chance.
Conner found herself embroiled in scandal when she tested positive for cocaine and was caught drinking despite being underage that year.
Many at the time speculated that she would be stripped of her title, but Trump surprised everyone when he didn’t rush to judgment and expressed concern for Conner’s well-being instead.
“First and foremost he is concerned about Tara and wants to do what is best for her,” Trump’s office said at the time. “Then he will think about what is best for the very successful Miss USA pageant.”
When the decision came down, spectators were surprised once again, with Trump allowing her to retain the title of Miss USA provided she enter a drug rehab program.
