NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – In an effort to shift the political and media focus away from his controversial Trump University, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump today announced his latest business venture: the International Beauty Queen Academy (IBQA).
Based in New York, the IBQA will offer undergraduate and graduate courses designed to train aspiring women (and transgender women) on what it takes to become an international beauty pageant title holder.
It is common knowledge that Trump used to own the Miss U.S.A. and Miss Universe Organizations and that he has impeccable credentials on mentoring and nurturing young women aspiring for a crown on their heads.
Trump said he has enlisted an international corps of former international beauty title holders to form the academy’s administrators and faculty.
IBQA has just released the strict criteria for admission to the academy, foremost of which are the ability to pay $20,000 in tuition fees per semester of the two-year undergraduate course, and $50,000 per semester of the one-year graduate course.
Interested applicants may send their headshots and the corresponding tuition fees to the Trump Tower in New York City. Prospective international students will be responsible for securing their own student visas to study in the U.S.
