After being stripped of her Miss Michigan crown for her conservative beliefs, Zhu joins #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board.
Great news! Ex-Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu recently Joined the Women for Trump Coalition! According to CBS News:
Kathy Zhu, the former Miss Michigan who was stripped of her title last week after several offensive tweets surfaced, has joined Trump’s reelection campaign efforts. The official Team Trump twitter account welcomed her on board Thursday, calling her a “patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown.” . . .
Speaking at a Women for Trump event in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan Friday, Zhu claimed that being openly conservative is extremely difficult. “It’s harder, I think, than coming out as, honestly, gay,” she said.
Zhu was stripped of her 2019 crown last week because of two controversial tweets from 2017 and 2018:
The first tweet read, “There is a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus. 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?”
The second tweet was as follows: “Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”
“Little attacks like those really, really diminishes the value and the trust of the word, ‘racism,'” Zhu responded in a twitter video.
Zhu is now putting her energy into something much more positive than splitting hairs over nonsensical accusations of racism: she’s working with conservative women to help President Trump get reelected.
“Team Trump welcomes Kathy Zhu to the Official #WomenforTrumpCoalition Advisory Board! [Kathy] is a patriot who has continued to stand for American values despite being stripped of her crown. Thank you for your support of President [Donald Trump],” Team Trump wrote Friday evening on Twitter.
According to the Daily Caller:
Zhu spoke at a Women for Trump luncheon Friday in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, where she was greeted by a standing ovation, reported The Detroit Free Press. . . .
“I think that everything I’ve said is considered free speech because it is backed up by statistics, facts, something I have experiences or my opinions,” she continued, according to The Detroit Free Press. “I don’t have a racist bone in my body. I don’t think I am Islamophobic, but I am going to criticize something that doesn’t fit within my morals when I see it.”
Zhu supported Trump’s 2016 campaign when she was a teen, and is back to help the president a second time. Hopefully, Zhu can work her mojo and help Trump get reelected in 2020!
