Jackie Evancho appeared on Good Morning America, and said that she wants to have a meeting with President Trump so she can ‘enlighten’ him on the discrimination people like her sister Juliet deal with on a daily basis.
Juliet is transgender, and to drive her point home Jackie brought along the 18-year-old so she could speak firsthand about her experiences in school, and the importance of protections for transgender students.
She spoke about how she has had things thrown at her, and verbally abused by fellow students ever since she came out as transgender.
“Donald Trump needs to know that being in such an unsafe environment won’t do any good,” explained Juliet, who was named Jacob at birth.
“Not only for the transgender and LGBT community, but everyone as a whole.”
