Fired for her conservative views that were connecting in a powerful way with millennials, former Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu will now have an even bigger platform to express her views–the official 2020 campaign of President Donald Trump.
It was announced Saturday that Zhu will be serving on the Women for Trump Coalition Advisory Board for the upcoming elections as she travels the country connecting with female voters.
The “Team Trump” official Twitter account announced the news.
Zhu said she is “so excited” to be on the advisory board and was later seen speaking at a Trump event.
Metro Voice reported last month that the Miss World America (MWA) organization took away Zhu’s crown after discovering several social media posts that the organization said contained offensive content.
“They stripped me of my Miss Michigan title due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and ‘insensitive’ statistical tweets,” Zhu said
Zhu argued that the Islamic headscarf is used to oppress women in Muslim countries. MWA also took issue when Zhu tweeted this controversial statement about race: “Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community before blaming others.”
Zhu told The Independent that she stands by her words and has received an outpouring of support after MWA’s decision.
“It is honestly sad that the left refers to statistics and facts as racist and insensitive,” Zhu said. “I am very glad that I now have the opportunity to speak out about the unjust treatment of conservatives.”
