Vocalist Jackie Evancho, right, performed the National Anthem at President Trump’s inauguration in January. Now she is calling on the president to help her transgender brother.
Evancho, 16, appeared on “Good Morning America” along with her brother “Juliet”, a biological male who prefers wearing stereotypical feminine clothing.
On Wednesday, the Trump administration withdrew federal protections for school children who are confused about their gender.
Juliet, 18, told George Stephanopoulos it is “unsafe and unhealthy” for students like him to use the boys restroom.
“Donald Trump needs to know that being in such an unsafe environment won’t do any good, not only for the transgender and the LGBT community, but as well everyone as a whole,” Juliet explained.
Prior to her appearance on Good Morning America, Jackie tweeted the president begging him to reconsider rolling back the transgender protections.
“@realDonaldTrump u gave me the honor 2 sing at your inauguration. Pls give me & my sis the honor 2 meet with u 2 talk #transgender rghts,” she wrote.
Jackie said she performed at the inauguration for “the honor and the privilege for my country.” She said she would do it again.
