Newly Crowned Miss USA Asya Branch Pushes Back Against Backlash She Got For Singing At Trump Rally

Miss USA 2020 Asya Branch is speaking out against backlash she got for singing at a Trump rally, and calling it an honor.

“Regardless of political beliefs, I find it an honor to be able to sing the national anthem anywhere and it just so happened to be at a Trump rally,” she said. “And I know I caught a lot of backlash for that. I did have a duty as an employee of the Miss Mississippi Corp. as well as a representative of the state of Mississippi.”

According to People, Branch referred to a criminal justice reform roundtable at the White House with President Donald Trump that she participated in in 2018. That same year she sang at a rally.

“If you can’t get a seat at the table, you can’t make a difference,” she added. “I found that to be an inspiring and moving moment for me because it shows that I can accomplish things and I can accomplish my goals and really make a difference in the world.”
