Teenage star Jackie Evancho, whose sister Juliet is transgender, expressed a willing to discuss the rights of transgender community as Donald Trump signed a law to roll back the rights of trans students. But since then she did not hear a word from Trump, although at first he said he would welcome her. Reaching out to Trump once again, she tweeted: “@realDonaldTrump – THANK YOU for being open to meeting with me to discuss #trans rights. I’ll be in #DC on 3/30 & 3/31. Can we meet?”. The latest requests have also gone unanswered. Asked about a potential meeting, she told Tribune Live: “I don’t know what I’ll say exactly,” said Evancho. “But I do know that my goal is going to be to take the ‘state issue’ now and make it federal, so that there can be a law or something passed to protect my sister and people like her. Just because I disagree with the president doesn’t mean that I despise him,” Jackie Evancho said. “I’m American and have the right to disagree with my president.”
