The dress is a nod to the US-North Korea summit, where Trump and Kim met in Singapore last year, and Khanum said the dress absolutely embodies „the essence of world peace.“

„My first impression of the costume was that it looked absolutely angelic and it truly did embody the essence of world peace,“ she said. „It definitely represents something we all need, which is to promote a sense of unity and friendship, rather than hatred and anger.“

Trump owned the Miss Universe contest between 1996 and 2015.

This year’s contest takes place in Bangkok, Thailand, on December 17.
