RHONY Star Luann De Lesseps Says Russell Simmons “Grabbed [Her] Ass in an Elevator”

Another woman has accused Russell Simmons of sexually harassing her, raising his current tally to at least 13 different women.

“Real Housewives of New York” star Luann de Lesseps claimed in an interview that the music mogul grabbed her butt in an elevator.

“He grabbed my ass in an elevator, he was just a pig,” the 52-year-old told The Daily Beast. “I haven’t told anybody about that before. I was grossed out. I was like ‘How dare you?’ He invaded me, he took advantage of me, being who he is, thinking he is all ‘it,’ all everything. He thought he could just do that. I looked at him and said, ‘Don’t ever do that again.’”

De Lesseps said the incident happened at the Soho House Miami three years ago and she never reported it and Simmons never apologized. Her allegation comes amid multiple sexual misconduct accusations from several women, however, Simmons denies any wrongdoing and has maintained his innocence, saying that the allegations have left him “devastated.”

“They have shocked me to my core as I have never been abusive or violent in any way in my relations with women. I am blessed to have shared extraordinary relationships, whether through work or love, with many great women, and I have enormous respect for the women’s movement worldwide and their struggle for respect, dignity, equality and power,” Simmons said in a statement. “I am devastated by any reason I may have given to anyone to say or think of me in the ways that are currently being described.”

Simmons’ camp has yet to respond to the latest allegation.

Kenya Moore Confirms She’s Pregnant With Her First Child on “RHOA” Reunion, Says She’s NOT Using a Surrogate

Two major pregnancy reveals in two days! Just one day after Cardi B finally unveiled her baby bump on SNL, Kenya Moore announced she is also expecting her first child.

Within three minutes of part one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta season 10 reunion, Kenya, 47, made the happy announcement for the first time, shocking host Andy Cohen and her RHOA co-stars.

“We will definitely be welcoming a boy or girl in late this year. Oh my God, I said that! I don’t want to talk about the details because I’m still very nervous about everything so I want to get past a safe place.”

“I want a healthy baby,” Kenya told Cohen, not wanting to reveal whether she’s having a boy or a girl. She also assured her co-stars that she wouldn’t joke about having a baby.

Kenya later thanked the ladies for their support on Twitter and also responded to speculation that she’s hired a surrogate since she never explicitly stated that she was pregnant.

Rumors of Kenya’s pregnancy have been rampant in recent months, especially following Love B. Scott’s exclusive report shortly after the reunion’s taping.

Kenya announced her pregnancy 10 months after secretly marrying restaurateur Marc Daly in Saint Lucia. Fans know her longtime desire in starting a family and the couple was spotted at a renowned IVF clinic in Barbados last year.

The baby news may have also saved Kenya her RHOA peach. Due to Kenya’s refusal to cooperate with producers and Daly’s reluctance to appear on the show (until the finale), it was heavily speculated producers would give her the pink slip at the conclusion of season 10.

However, sources now say Kenya’s pregnancy and overall reunion show performance may be enough to keep her (and Daly) around… for now.

WATCH: Cardi B Confirms Pregnancy, Shows Off Baby Bump During “SNL” Performance

Cardi B’s big not-so-secret has FINALLY been revealed. The rapstress confirmed her pregnancy and showed off her baby bump during her big appearance on SNL last night!

Fresh off the release of her debut album Invasion of Privacy, Cardi B made her Saturday Night Live debut this weekend by performing all of her singles from the project.

After an introduction from “Black Panther” star and SNL host Chadwick Boseman, the femcee—wearing a big poofy dress that covered her belly—kicked things off with a short rendition of her first hit “Bodak Yellow” (including a little bit of the Spanish version) before quickly transitioning into her now-platinum second single “Bartier Cardi.”

Cardi’s second set was her third single “Be Careful.” At the beginning of the performance, the camera was zoomed in on Cardi, then as the camera panned out to show her full body, you could hear the crowd cheering as you could obviously see her growing baby bump in her tight white dress.

A TMZ report revealed Cardi’s pregnancy last month, and the former Love & Hip Hop star has remained mum on the subject for a minute, but it looks like the cat is finally out of the bag now.

Backstage, following her SNL performances and pregnancy/baby bump reveal, Cardi B said in a video posted on social media, “I’m finally free!”

Cardi’s fiancé and baby daddy Offset responded on Twitter, saying that he was looking forward to their next chapter.

As for Cardi, she wrote that Baby Bardi was going to propel her success even further.

Congrats to Cardi B and Offset!

From the looks of it, Cardi is about five or six months pregnant, so Baby Bardi will probably arrive sometime near the end of the summer, either in July or August, right before she’s due to hit the road with Bruno Mars for the fourth and final leg of his “24K Magic” World Tour.

Sheree Whitfield Reportedly FIRED From “Real Housewives of Atlanta” (Again!); Kenya Moore Safe (For Now)

Wow, this is a shocker! Bravo shook the peach tree and the unlucky Atlanta housewife to lose her peach may not be who you think it is.

Love B Scott is exclusively reporting that Sheree Whitfield has been FIRED from The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Though it has been heavily speculated for months the Kenya Moore would be the booted housewife, sources tell the gossip site Sheree was the first lady not asked to return for season 11.

Porsha Williams doesn’t seem too sad to see her only friend go. She cryptically wrote “karma” on Twitter, but the added peach emoji was all the shade we needed to catch the hint.

Sheree’s second departure is a little surprising, but I guess her odd romance with inmate Tyrone Gilliams just wasn’t enough to make a cold glass of sweet peach tea.

Sources say Porsha, NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, and Cynthia Bailey are all safe (for now) and expected to return next season. Housewife “friend” Eva Marcille may even be back.

Kenya was apparently saved because of her pregnancy announcement and reunion show antics. Producers were also pleased that her husband Marc Daly finally agreed to appear on the show.

Along with Sheree, fellow RHOA OG Kim Zolciak is also not expected film for season 11. Good riddance! Kim only appeared as a “friend” but her season 10 return was plagued by accusations she’s racist—which, to be quite honest, were kinda hard to debate.

Love B Scott also included a production note stating housewives are simultaneously notified of their pickup options approximately two weeks after the reunion show taping.

Note: All pickup letters are sent out simultaneously approximately two weeks after the taping of the reunion show(s) concludes. Each housewife is then notified whether their contract will be renewed. Bravo housewife contracts have pre-negotiated renewal clauses/options determining how many additional seasons their option is for and any respective salary increases. New contract negotiations do not occur each year.

Part One of the Season 10 Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion airs Sunday, April 8 on Bravo.

WATCH: Videos From Nasim Aghdam’s Now-Deleted YouTube Channel

The suspected YouTube mass shooter, who wounded three people at the company’s San Bruno, California headquarters Tuesday afternoon (Apr. 3) before killing herself, was identified as 38-year-old Nasim Aghdam, a woman from Iran who moved to California with her family back in 1996.

Nasim Aghdam had a prolific presence on social media, and her now-deleted YouTube channels and Instagram accounts featured numerous rants against the company for allegedly censoring her and discriminating against her videos, which she believed caused her to lose money and viewers.

According to her website, Aghdam owned at least four separate YouTube channels: one in Farsi, one in Turkish, one in English and one dedicated to making beaded necklaces.

She wrote on her website: “The very first Persian vegan TV commercial and vegan music video was created by Nasim and launched through international Persian satellite  television ‘Andisheh TV’ for the first time in April, 2010. I also had TV shows on different Iranian TVs.”

YouTube has since deactivated all four of her channels “due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations,” the website said, however, you can watch some of her videos—which she also posted on Facebook and Instagram—below.

Based on how hard she worked to maintain her social media presence, it seems the 38-year-old the animal rights activist and self-proclaimed “vegan bodybuilder” had dreams of being a YouTube star. Her channels featured some pretty well-produced, albeit hella cheesy, green screen videos that showcased everything from cooking to exercise to arts and crafts.

The About section on her YouTube channel read:

Nasim the Persian Azeri female vegan bodybuilder, also animal rights activist promoting healthy and humane living. Nasim produced and launched the first Persian TV commercial and music video (Do You Dare) regarding animal rights and veganism through international Iranian satellite Television in 2010.

Nasim’s father, Ismail Aghdam, told the San Jose Mercury News that he reported his daughter to police after she went missing and stopped answering phone calls from her family. Ismail said that he was particularly concerned about Nasim’s feelings towards YouTube, and prior to the shooting, he said he warned police that she had became angry with the popular video service after they stopped paying her for the content she posted online.

Early Tuesday morning, at around 2 a.m. (about 11 hours before the shooting), Mountain View police were able to locate Aghdam, who they said had been sleeping in her car. They assured Mr. Aghdam that his daughter was OK and everything was “under control.” Nasim’s father said he and his family were unaware that Nasim owned a gun. “Maybe she bought one” recently, he said.

Nasim’s brother, Shahran Aghdam, said she had been recently living with their grandmother in San Diego and echoed his father’s revelation that Nasim wasn’t fond of YouTube in recent times. “She was always complaining that YouTube ruined her life,” he said. Shahran said when he found out his sister was in Mountain View, he said he Googled the city and found out it was near YouTube’s headquarters. He said he called Mountain View police, who found her and reported back to him that she was OK and they would watch her from there.

Her YouTube channel remained active for a short time following the mass shooting at YouTube’s headquarters, which left three people wounded (a fourth person injured their ankle likely while running away) and Aghdam dead of what police say was a self-inflicted wound. She had thousands of subscribers on all four of her channels, and her videos had been watched millions of times collectively.

Aghdam also has a DailyMotion account, which is still currently active at the moment, where she uploaded 44 videos but has less than 100 followers. The videos there, with a collective 100K+ views, ranged from exercise tutorials to cooking demonstrations (like one about a vegan omelet) and parodies, such as one of America’s Got Talent.

In one of her deleted YouTube videos, Aghdam complained about the company discriminating and filtering her content. Aghdam says in the video that her channel used to get lots of views, but after being censored/filtered by the company, it received much fewer views. In a Facebook post from February 2017 Aghdam blasted YouTube saying, “There is not equal growth opportunity on YouTube.”

She also wrote on Instagram:

“All my youtube channels got filtered by youtube so my videos hardly get views and it is called ‘merely relegation.’ This is also happening to many other channels on youtube. This is the peaceful tactic used on the internet to censor and suppress people who speak the truth and are not good for the financial, political … gains of the system and big businesses. I recently got filtered on instagram too and maybe its related to youtube and youtube staff asked instagram to filter me here too!!?”

Overall, it appeared she was trying to be a YouTube star, judging by the numerous goofy parody videos. One of the clips was a comedy video called “Americans Iranians” and another was a Taylor Swift parody video.

Other social media posts and videos from her YouTube channel referred to veganism, cooking, and animal rights.

She was quoted in a 2009 Los Angeles Times article when she participated in a PETA-sponsored protest advocating for animal rights. “For me animal rights equals human rights,” the article quoted a then 29-year-old Nasim Aghdam as saying. “Just because they can’t talk doesn’t mean we should take advantage of them,” she also said, according to the article, which identified her as “a construction company office manager from San Diego.”

Authorities haven’t yet specified a motive for the shooting. Despite earlier news reports out of California saying that the shooting may have stemmed from a domestic dispute, police later said that this wasn’t true. Aghdam died at the scene from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said. The identities of the three other people who were shot haven’t yet been released.

Nasim Aghdam: YouTube HQ Shooter’s Family Tried to Warn Police She Was “Angry” With the Company Prior to Shooting

Officials have identified a 38-year-old woman named Nasim Aghdam as the suspect who opened fire at the YouTube headquarters in San Bruno, California on Tuesday (Apr. 3), NBC News reports. She was found dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after shooting multiple people outside YouTube’s HQ.

Aghdam was born in Iran and was a resident of Riverside, California at the time of the shooting. She was active on YouTube and was known for ranting about the company and complaining about its policies in videos on her YouTube channels, on Instagram, and on her own website.

Investigators initially categorized the shooting as a domestic dispute, however, they believe it may have been the result of grievances she had with YouTube.

The shooting appears to have occurred in a courtyard area on YouTube’s campus, San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said. Law enforcement officials said Aghdam approached an outdoor patio and dining area at YouTube’s headquarters and opened fire with a 9mm handgun. Senior officials said they don’t believe the incident is connected to terrorism.

Aghdam—who identified as Persian and frequently posted videos and other posts in both English and Farsi, the official language of Iran—had various online aliases including Nasim Sabz and Nasin VeganBreeze.

Here are some things you need to know about Nasim Aghdam and the YouTube headquarters shooting.

Nasim Aghdam had her own channel on YouTube and was angry at the company for allegedly discriminating against her videos, which caused her to lose money and views.

While it was initially believed that Aghdam, 39, was a “disgruntled employee,” authorities don’t believe she had any direct connection to YouTube, however, according to NBC, she did have her own YouTube Channel, where she would often post videos that featured rants against the company.

Her YouTube channel, where she posted under the name “Nasim Wonder1,” has since been deleted. Before its deletion, she boasted more than 5,000 subscribers and her videos had been watched more than one million times.

The About page on her channel read:

Nasim the Persian Azeri female vegan bodybuilder, also animal rights activist promoting healthy and humane living. Nasim produced and launched the first Persian TV commercial and music video (Do You Dare) regarding animal rights and veganism through international Iranian satellite Television in 2010.

In addition to her YouTube channel, Aghdam was also known for ranting about the platform on her own website because she believed that the company was purposely filtering her channel to keep her from getting views.

Aghdam wrote on her website, “This video got age restricted after new close-minded YouTube employees, got control of my Farsi YouTube channel last year 2016 & began filtering my videos to reduce views & suppress & discaurage [sic] me from making videos!”

Another message on her site read, “There is no free speech in [the] real world & you will be suppressed for telling the truth that is not supported by the system. Videos of targeted users are filtered & merely relegated, so that people can hardly see their videos! There is no equal growth opportunity on YouTube or any other video sharing site, your channel will grow if they want to!!!!”

She also felt the need to point out the fact that her Instagram followers and interaction were all real, and not purchased like some people with large followers sometimes do.

“My Instagram followers, views, likes are real. On instagram, you can buy pages, buy likes, buy followers,….” she wrote. “But mine are real, without advertising or using programs designed to promote instagram pages.”

Aghdam identified as “Baha’i” and her online posts were in both English and Farsi, the official language of Iran. She also had various online aliases including Nasim (or “Nasime”) Sabz and Nasim VeganBreeze.

Aghdam, who referred to herself as “Persian,” had an online presence that consisted of a number of posts, photos and videos in English and in Farsi, which is the official language of Iran. She posted several videos on Instagram discussing subjects like freedom of speech. “When it comes to freedom of speech do you think Iran is better than the USA or the USA is better than Iran?” Aghdam asked her IG followers in a video posted on Sunday, March 25.

She wrote on her website:

Be aware! Dictatorship exists in all countries but with different tactics! They only care for personal short term profits & do anything to reach their goals even by fooling simple-minded people, hiding the truth, manipulating science & everything, putting public mental & physical health at risk, abusing non-human animals, polluting environment, destroying family values, promoting materialism & sexual degeneration in the name of freedom,….. & turning people into programmed robots! ‘Make the lie big, Make it simple, Keep saying it, And eventually they will believe it’ Adolf Hitler.

In an article posted under one of her aliases, Aghdam revealed that she identified as Baha’i. Using the name Nasime Sabz, Aghdam talked about her spiritual beliefs and also said that Baha’i followers are “frequently persecuted in Iran.”

The Baha’i organization’s website describes the religion as follows:

In thousands upon thousands of locations around the world, the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith inspire individuals and communities as they work to improve their own lives and contribute to the advancement of civilization. Bahá’í beliefs address such essential themes as the oneness of God and religion, the oneness of humanity and freedom from prejudice, the inherent nobility of the human being, the progressive revelation of religious truth, the development of spiritual qualities, the integration of worship and service, the fundamental equality of the sexes, the harmony between religion and science, the centrality of justice to all human endeavours, the importance of education, and the dynamics of the relationships that are to bind together individuals, communities, and institutions as humanity advances towards its collective maturity.

According to her website, Aghdam had four YouTube channels: one in Farsi, one in Turkish, one in English and one dedicated to making beaded necklaces.

YouTube has since deactivated all four pages “due to multiple or severe violations of YouTube’s policy against spam, deceptive practices, and misleading content or other Terms of Service violations,” the website said.

Aghdam was an animal rights activist and a vegan bodybuilder.

Aghdam called herself a vegan bodybuilder and frequently shared workout videos on YouTube. She explained to Vegan Idea World in a now deleted interview (which was re-posted by a site called Peaceful Dumpling) her decision to become vegan:

“From a very young age I used to care about the animals and their welfare, and think about the source of meat and where it came from and I knew that the fried chicken on my dinner plate once was a beautiful yellow chick! I was surprised to learn how people were so indifferent toward humanitarian issues; why harming and killing innocent animals were so normal to them; why they followed the ancient traditions no matter what they were; why they looked at meat only as delicious food and not look at the source of this product. From that age I started opposing eating meat and wearing animal skin, and what my family and other people said in order to discourage me had no effect on me because I had faith that my belief was true and that meat is not a food of compassion and kindness.”

She also talked about veganism from the perspective of health and explained how athletes could benefit from a healthy vegetarian diet:

“Vegan diet is the healthiest diet for humans because the human body is naturally an herbivore body. The human body is not driven to attack, tear apart, eat or drink [the] blood of a live animal upon laying eyes on her/him. But when someone sees a grape on a vine, her/his mouth waters, walks toward the grape, picks and eats it. By contrast, when you see a dead animal on the side of the road, are you tempted to eat the animal with your bare hands?

“Following a vegan, especially raw vegan, diet benefits our health, animal welfare and survival of the planet earth because animal products are one of the major causes of environmental pollution and destruction. I grew up as a vegetarian but after becoming aware of how inhumanely other animal products such as milk, dairy and eggs are produced and how harmful these products are to [the] human body, I went vegan.

“I have been a vegetarian from a young age and I used to realize how much healthier my body is compared to others. I always had higher energy, was active in sports and had [a] stronger immune system (hardly caught a cold) unlike what most omnivores experienced. After going vegan, I felt much more healthier and lighter, even more energetic. Most common question meat eater athletes ask vegans is how you can get energy from eating plants–and where you get your protein. Meat eaters believe that the only source of protein for building muscle is animal protein. The fact is that animal protein slows down digestion and the body has to get more energy from [the] body to work harder to break down this protein because [the] human body is not designed to digest meat. But plant-based protein is easily absorbed and turned into energy.

“This is one reason why vegans are more energetic. Almost any food has protein in it and foods high in protein are legumes, nuts, seeds and dark leafy green vegetables. Going vegan is so easy and the only important thing that we need to consider is eating a variety of plant-based whole foods and not even worry about taking supplements. I have never needed to worry about measuring my protein, vitamin or calories intake. You will know what, when and how much to eat when you become acquainted with your body.”

She also said that we as humans should “more plant-based whole foods and stay away from processed/filtered foods because the methods of preparation strip a lot of the nutrients.”

Aghdam’s social media pages contained lots of graphic images of animals being mistreated. Several of the posts on her “vegan” page were censored by Instagram, as seen below, because of how disturbing the content was. Like her YouTube channels, both her personal and vegan Instagram accounts have been deleted as well. She also had a Facebook page under the name “Nasime Sabz,” which was also deleted.

Nearly a decade ago, back in 2009, Aghdam participated in a protest organized by PETA at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California, where she joined about two dozen other activists who protested the killing of live pigs for military training sessions for Marines and sailors.

News accounts published around the time of the protest said she carried a plastic sword and wore pants spattered with fake blood. “For me animal rights equals human rights. Just because they can’t talk doesn’t mean we should take advantage of them,” a then-29-year-old Aghdam told The Los Angeles Times.

Aghdam had been reported missing by her family, and her father and brother both told police she was angry with YouTube prior to the shooting.

Ismail Aghdam, Nasim’s father, spoke with Mercury News in a telephone interview following Tuesday’s shooting. He told the outlet that he had called police prior to the shooting and told them that his daughter had been missing for two days.

Mr. Aghdam said he also told police that his daughter may have been headed to YouTube because she “hated” the company because they were censoring her videos and had stopped paying her for them. “She was angry,” he told Mercury News.

On Tuesday, April 3 around 2 a.m. Pacific time (about 11 hours before the shooting), Mountain View police found Aghdam, who they said had been sleeping in her car, but she was OK and everything was “under control,” Aghdam’s father said.

“Our officers made contact with the woman after the license plate of her vehicle matched that of a missing person out of Southern California,” Mountain View Police spokeswoman Katie Nelson said. “The woman confirmed her identity to us and answered subsequent questions. At the conclusion of our discussion, her family was notified that she had been located.”

Ismail Aghdam also told Mercury News that he and his family were unaware that Nasim owned a gun. “Maybe she bought one” recently, he said. Mr. Aghdam asked one reporter about the condition of the victims, Mercury News reported. Nasim’s brother, Shahran Aghdam, also spoke to the media outlet from the family’s home Tuesday night, and his mother could reportedly be heard crying in the background.

Shahran said the family came to California from Iran in 1996, and he said Nasim had been recently living with their grandmother in San Diego. He said, “She was always complaining that YouTube ruined her life.” He also said his sister had been missing since Saturday and wasn’t answering her cell phone.

When Shahran found out she was in Mountain View, he said Googled the city and found it was near YouTube’s headquarters. He said he called the Mountain View police, who found her and reported back to him that she was fine and they would watch her from there. Wednesday would have been Nasim’s 39th birthday, Shahran said.

Police originally believed a male who was injured was an intended target, and don’t believe the shooting was an act of terrorism.

Police have yet to reveal a motive behind the shooting, and though law enforcement officials initially believed could have been due to a “domestic-related dispute,” MSNBC reported, investigators are now saying, “there is no evidence that the shooter knew the victims of this shooting or that individuals were specifically targeted.” They do, however, believe that the shooting was not terror-related “in any way,” MSNBC reported.

“This woman came to the YouTube workplace with a specific target in mind; someone she knew, someone with whom she wanted to settle a grievance. She shot that person, she may have shot a second person who was with him, intentionally. We’re not sure about the third person,” MSNBC reporter Pete Williams originally said, however, this has not been confirmed.

San Bruno police confirmed that four people were taken to area hospitals and treated for injuries. Three of the victims had been shot and one had a broken ankle. San Bruno Police Chief Ed Barberini said during a press conference:

“We did encounter one victim with an apparent gunshot wound, towards the front of the business as we arrived. Several minutes later, while conducting a search of the premises, officers located a second individual with a gunshot wound, that [may have been] self inflicted. We are still working on confirming that. Two additional victims were located several minutes later at an adjacent business. The extent of all the injuries of our victims, are unknown right now. They were all transported for emergency medical care… We have four victims who have all been transported for gunshot-related [injuries].”

Brent Andrew from San Francisco General Hospital told the media, “We received three patients.” A 36-year-old male was listed in critical condition at this time. A female victim was listed in serious condition and a third victim, another female, was said to be in fair condition.

Officials previously believed the male in critical condition may have been Nasim Aghdam’s intended target, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.

Donald Trump Clowned on Twitter After Struggling to Describe the White House at Easter Egg Roll

Donald Trump is an idiot, this we know, but it’s still amazing to see how far his stupidity can go at times.

During a short, nonsensical speech before the traditional White Hous Easter Egg Roll Monday (Apr. 3), y’alls president—flanked by the First Lady, who clearly doesn’t want to be there, and an Easter Bunny with a hilariously perfect expression on its face—struggled with the simple task of describing the home he’s been living in for the past year and some change.

He also did that thing he does where he just says random things that make no sense and rambles on and on about absolutely nothing, which irritates the hell out of me. And he also bragged about the military having a $700 billion budget. (Like… who does this?!)

Watch here:

Welcome to the 2018 White House Easter Egg Roll. So many people. You know, it was supposed to be pouring, the weather. It was supposed to be very rainy and nasty and cold and windy. And look what we have: perfect weather. Perfect weather. Beautiful weather.

Thank you all for being here, folks. Thank you all. I want to really thank the First Lady, Melania, who has done an incredible job. She worked so hard on this event, and I so want to thank you. (Applause.) That’s beautiful.

Also, I want to thank the White House Historical Association and all of the people that work so hard with Melania, with everybody, to keep this incredible house or building, or whatever you want to call it — because there really is no name for it; it is special — and we keep it in tip-top shape. We call it sometimes tippy-top shape. And it’s a great, great place.

It’s an honor to have everybody. On behalf of the Trump family, many of whom are with us right here in the audience, I just want to thank you. This is a special year. Our country is doing great.
