Intimidating girl quotes
I'd said, "Hey, do you want to come out and film something at the club? I only have about 15 minutes though." Well, once he was there and once the cameras were going, it was like, he was there as long as was needed. Anytime I'm in New York, Donald Trump will see me up to his office.
"Donald really has, in just a short amount of time, changed the face of politics as we know it.He had his son and daughter give me a tour of his offices, and I was able to meet with lots of his staff, people that had been with him for years. He was shocked, but then I think he also respected my decision. "I don't know, I thought maybe the runner-up or, you know." It was just, you know, normal conversation.And then I went back into his office and he gave me two job offers. He said, "You know what, I am surprised, because these would have been big moneymakers for you, but you need to follow your heart." Later on, he would call me — after a Miss Universe pageant, or a Miss USA pageant. And so we got to know each other a little bit more. When I got married, he gave me a really great deal on his country club in Palos Verdes; decided to film the wedding and he flew out.Then, as the pageant took place, I saw him sitting in the audience and kind of elbowing the person next to him and pointing to me quite a few times.Once the pageant was over — I made top 10 — Trump came onto the stage and walked to me first, out of anyone, and said, "Miss Oregon, you were my favorite.And the moment that you underestimate Donald Trump, you lose.
I was Miss Oregon USA 2004, and knowing that Donald Trump owned the Miss USA pageant, I hoped there would be a small chance of meeting him there.
They're showing the footage and they're asking, "Come on, Jennifer, you can't agree with how Donald's handling it?
" And so I ended up saying something like, "Well, it's not the way I would handle it, but Donald Trump's a businessman and he doesn't mind the publicity." He saw that, and when I called [soon afterward] to invite him to a party I was having, I get him on the phone and he says, "Jennifer, no.
I can't get involved with the judging, I need to stay neutral, but you would have been my choice." I said, "Well, thank you very much. So I ended up trying out for the show like everyone else.
But I'm actually kind of OK with the fact that I didn't win because I'm a huge fan of and I would love to be on the show." And he said, "You would be fabulous. Now Trump doesn't normally get involved with the casting, but for [my season], he did.
And [during the final round of auditions], the producers were saying, "Oh, she's a beauty queen, she won't be taken credibly," so the fact that Donald Trump, he saw that tenacity, he saw my drive, and he stood up for me, that's something I'll never forget.
