Sheena Monnin has quit her post as Miss Pennsylvania USA, blasting Donald Trump’s Miss Universe Organization as “lacking in morals” and “trashy.”
E! Online reports on the controversy, in which she claims the Miss USA contest was rigged and denies her earlier stance against the inclusion of transgender contestants.
