The first winner of Mrs. World Vietnam Doan Thi Kim Hong once had the honour to meet and work with newly-elected President Donald Trump in New York.
In 2006, Kim Hong was working with Trump on bringing the Miss Universe pageant to Vietnam. At that time, many other countries around the world also wanted to host this beauty pageant. However, in the process of discussion and negotiations, Trump was convinced by the effort of the Vietnamese team and helped to realise this biggest beauty pageant in the universe in Vietnam in 2007.
The Miss Universe pageant was then held successfully in the city of Nha Trang in Vietnam’s central coastal province of Khanh Hoa in that year. Through this beauty pageant, Vietnam’s image, culture, history, economy and people has been widely promoted worldwide through NBC channel.
Kim Hong is very excited at Trump’s victory to become the 45th US president and looks forward to seeing him again in the future. “As a Vietnamese citizen, I wish the friendship of Vietnam and the US will develop sustainably,” she said.
