New Book Details Donald Trump's Racism at Miss Universe Pageants

It's not clear whether the letter was ever sent to Putin, and if so, whether Putin responded.

The document had been turned over to investigators probing allegations that the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation, according to the report.

At the bottom of the typed letter, Trump scrawled a postscript adding that he looked forward to seeing "beautiful" women during his trip.

The findings stem from the soon-to-be released book, Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump, by Michael Isikoff, Yahoo News' chief investigative correspondent, and David Corn, Mother Jones' Washington bureau chief.

The gift supposedly arrived after Trump put on the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow, after which he hoped he would be able to construct a Trump Tower in the Russian capital.

"I had a great weekend with you and your family", Trump tweeted at Agalarov in November 2013". Other activities involved nude young women playing out "golden shower" scenes and other unmentionables. It's unclear which acts were performed the night Trump's party visited the club. A dossier compiled by former British intelligence agent Christopher Steele and funded by the DNC and a Republican donor alleged that he had been filmed by Russian security services cavorting with prostitutes in a Moscow hotel room during the trip, and the information could be used as leverage over Trump by the Kremlin. Kaveladze was one of several individuals from Russia's side who attended the meeting, which counterintelligence experts say was part of Russia's attempt to infiltrate the campaign.

At the time, Trump made no secret that he hoped Putin would attend the Miss Universe pageant, which was being held in Russian Federation for the first time.

Investigators for special counsel Robert S. Mueller III have asked witnesses questions about the Miss Universe pageant and Trump's interest in having Putin attend the event, according to people familiar with the inquiry. Trump has repeatedly sought to build a tower in Russian Federation since the late 1980s, without success.

"In short, no woman was a finalist until Trump said so", read the excerpt.

Around the same time that Trump reportedly wrote the Putin letter, he also took to Twitter to marvel at the Russian president.

Since taking office, he has met Putin twice.

During the pageant, Trump suggested that Putin was following the event and Trump's role in it.

During a Republican primary debate in November 2015, Trump said that he knew Putin "very well".
