Only in America can you slander the President, and then become a symbol of the country. Miss North Dakota did just that when she made her anti-Trump comments and then won the crown at the Miss America 2018 contest Sunday night in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Cara Mund, Miss North Dakota, prevailed over 51 other contestants, with her liberal attitude and anti-Trump statements. In one of her interviews performed onstage, Mund was asked what she thought about Trump leaving the Paris Agreement.
Mund answered, “I do believe it’s a bad decision. Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that’s something that we really need to keep in mind.”
“There is evidence that climate change is existing. So whether you believe it or not, we need to be at that table, and I think it’s just a bad decision on behalf of the United States,” Mund continued.
Apparently Mund isn’t too concerned with that the Trump thinks about her view on his presidential decisions. Mund states, “Miss America needs to have an opinion and she needs to know what’s happening in the current climate.”
President Trump has not dignified Mund’s remarks with any of his own. Trying to save face, Mund said, “He is our President and we need to support him. I may not agree with all of his opinions, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to support the President.”
Alluding to her own political views and plans, Mund said her goal is to be the first woman elected governor of her home state, North Dakota. In the interview with the Associated Press she shared that she wants to see more women leaders in government.
This year’s Miss America competition had a strong anti-trump message woven throughout. Miss Missouri was asked whether or not Trump had colluded with Russia, and Miss New Jersey was asked how she felt about Confederate statues being ripped down.
