Donald Trump says last night’s blunder in which Steve Harvey announced the wrong Miss Universe winner “never would have happened” when he owned the pageant. (See his tweet below). He also gave host Harvey some kind words on NBC’s Today show, saying “Steve Harvey is a great guy … things happen, it’s live television.” Trump says he would have made the two women “co-winners.” “It would be very cool”,

He earlier retweeted:

Harvey called the snafu a “horrible mistake” and apologized profusely for the error. Misreading the finalists at last night’s pageant in Las Vegas, Harvey said Miss Colombia was the winner but she was actually the first runner-up and Miss Philippines was the real winner.
