Disgraced Miss Michigan 2019 joins Trump campaign

The woman who lost her Miss Michigan crown after offensive tweets surfaced from her twitter account has joined the Trump campaign.

Kathy Zhu, 20, has been named a Women for Trump Coalition Advisory Board member, reports CNN. The Trump campaign called her a “patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown.”

“There’s a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus,” Zhu wrote on Twitter in Feb. 2018. “So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?”

“Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix Problems within your own community first before blaming others,” she said in another tweet.

According to the NY Daily News, Miss Michigan World said her “social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive and inappropriate content that violate the organization’s rules and conditions.”

Zhu accused the pageant of punishing her for her conservative views saying it’s harder to be conservative than to come out as gay.
