Donald Trump Buys Back Full Shares In Miss Universe Organization
Trump accused NBC chiefs of breach of contract and the parties entered into arbitration talks to discuss a settlement. On Friday, the outspoken TV personality and new politician declared a deal had been reached. Taking to Twitter, he wrote, “Just purchased NBC’s half of The Miss Universe Organization and settled all lawsuits against them. Now own 100% – stay tuned!”
No further details about the agreement, including how much the billionaire paid, have been revealed. Trump and his partners turned to little-known Reelz Channel to air the Miss USA pageant after the NBC snub. The show flopped in the TV ratings as it pulled in less than a million viewers.
