Paris Hilton reluctantly admitted that she voted for Donald Trump in last week's presidential election. Appearing on an Australian TV show Thursday, Hilton hesitated and giggled when asked if she voted for Trump before saying, “I’ve known him since I'm a little girl—so, yes." About two months before Election Day, Hilton told CNBC that she knows Trump to be "very nice man" and a "very sweet person" who she "likes a lot" personally, but would not say whether she planned to vote for him. “My mom always told me not to talk about money or politics," she said at the time.
Hilton, who has been good friends with Ivanka Trump since they were both young girls, has long been a target of Trump's inappropriate comments on The Howard Stern Show. “I’ve known Paris Hilton from the time she’s 12, her parents are friends of mine, and the first time I saw her she walked into the room and I said, ‘Who the hell is that?’” Trump once said of the pre-teen. Later, he added, “I hate what happened with that sex tape, but it only made her hotter.”
