Former Miss USA Tara Conner revealed in an op-ed piece this week that President Donald Trump saved her life after she found herself battling an addiction to drugs in 2006.
Writing for USA Today, Conner explained that she had tested positive for cocaine and was in danger of losing her crown when Trump, who owned the Miss Universe pageant at that time, made arrangements for her to enter rehab.
“Rather than strip me of my crown or add to the negative press with a humiliation campaign, Donald Trump surprised me, and shocked the world, when he held a news conference and declared: ‘Tara is going to be given a second chance,’” Conner said.
Conner explained that her problems with addiction had begun when she started drinking alcohol in her teens. Alcohol led to morphine, which led to a serious drug addiction that became public knowledge because of the cocaine incident.
Conner said she has been out of treatment for ten years.
“I thank (Trump) for my 10 years of recovery. I will always be profoundly grateful. He saved my life and, essentially, made me great again,” she wrote.
Conner cited Trump’s Tuesday speech to Congress, in which the president promised that “we will stop the drugs from pouring into our country and poisoning our youth — and we will expand treatment for those who have become so badly addicted.”
Conner concluded her column by saying she would support the president in any way she could.
“It is the least I can do considering what he did for me,” she said.
What a moving testimony.
