Trump 2020 team hires beauty queen who lost title for tweeting her conservative views
July 30, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Kathy Zhu may no longer be Miss Michigan, but she’s found a new role where speaking her mind is unlikely to be an issue, with President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.
Zhu, a University of Michigan student and former beauty queen, announced earlier this month that Miss World America was revoking her Miss Michigan title for “offensive, insensitive, and inappropriate content” on her Twitter feed. The group has not commented publicly, but Zhu shared texts indicating they objected to a 2017 comment that “the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks,” and says her response to being asked to wear a Muslim hijab was also an issue.
“It is honestly sad that the left refers to statistics and facts as racist and insensitive,” said Zhu, who stands by her past tweets. “I am very glad that I now have the opportunity to speak out about the unjust treatment of conservatives.”
However, following the controversy, Trump’s 2020 campaign announced it has named Zhu to the Women for Trump Coalition Advisory Board, calling her a “patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown.”

Thank you for your support of President @realdonaldtrump!
“I am so excited to now be part of the #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board,” Zhu said. “Let’s get Trump re-elected for 2020.”
Zhu garnered national attention in 2016 when she abandoned Hillary Clinton for Donald Trump, and last fall when she admitted that the pro-life film Gosnell led her to “finally understand the horrors of loopholes in late term abortions.”
