Donald Trump is speaking out about the surprising decision to let a woman—who used to be a man—compete in the Miss Universe Pageant. INSIDE EDITION's Les Trent caught up with him as he was promoting Celebrity Apprentice.
"Well, it was a very complex decision and what we decided to do, and what we always do, is we go by the laws, in this case the United States, and the laws say that she should be able to compete," said Trump.
23-year-old Talackova was accused of being "dishonest" on her application because the rules state "all contestants must be naturally born females."
But now, in a reversal of its position, the Miss Universe organization says it will allow Talackova to compete.
