Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private

Crossing the Line: How Donald Trump Behaved With Women in Private Trump with Miss USA contestants in 2013, when he was the pageant’s owner.

According to reports at one point they consulted a neighbor who is a nurse, and who told the parents Ezekiel might have meningitis. At that point they were giving him fluids through an eye dropper because he could not eat or drink. Some blame the Canadian system saying it was difficult to get a doctor’s appointment, and that the ambulance was delayed and did not have the proper equipment to intubate him.
