Donald Trump Weighs in on Miss Universe Mix-up

Trump jumped to the defense of host Steve Harvey.

"What happened to the girl from Colombia is devastating," Trump said on the "Today" show. "I think I would make them co-winners. It would be very cool."

Trump, who sold Miss Universe after his partnership with NBC Universal controversially dissolved this fall, tweeted about the mishap this morning:

Trump acknowledged that incident was a "terrible error" but conceded that such mistakes can happen on live television. He praised Harvey, calling him "terrific" and a "great guy."
