The conservative Michigan woman who claimed she was fired from the Miss World America procession because her tweets about black-on-black gun violence and refusing to fit a hijab were considered & quot; offensive, insensitive, and inappropriate & # 39; in the Trump re-election campaign.
& # 39; I am so excited to be part of the #WomenforTrump Coalition Advisory Board now! & # 39; Zhu tweeted Thursday. & # 39; Let's re-elect Trump for 2020. & # 39;
The 20-year-old tweet followed the announcement made by @TeamTrump, the official Twitter campaign for President Trump's campaign, which welcomed her earlier in the day during the re-election efforts.

Zhu revealed that she is part of Trump's re-election campaign in a tweet
TeamTrump called Zhu & # 39; a patriot who has stood for American values even though she has been stripped of her crown & # 39; and thanked her for supporting Trump.
Zhu said Friday during a Women for Trump lunch in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan: "It seems harder to be conservative than homosexual," Detroit Free Press.
She added that & # 39; people wanted to make fun of me & # 39; and claimed that & # 39; there were so many times that my account was hacked from the left & # 39 ;.
Zhu, a political commentator and a student from the University of Michigan, made headlines saying she received an email from Miss World American parade organizers on July 18, informing her that she had been dumped by the competition, in which she was crowned Miss Michigan, because of her social media content.
The e-mail, that Zhu tweeted, said she was supposedly told that her & # 39; social media accounts contain offensive, insensitive, and inappropriate content & # 39; and & # 39; were in violation of the rules and conditions of MWA, in particular the competition requirement of & # 39; have a good character and whose background is unlikely to lead to discrediting Miss World America. & # 39; & # 39;
Zhu & # 39; s announcement followed a tweet from the Trump campaign that Zhu & # 39; a patriot & # 39; called
Zhu, a fan of Donald Trump, claimed that parades organizers fired her based on her social media posts that they said in an email that they were & # 39; offensive, insensitive, and inappropriate & # 39; goods

She was also instructed to remove all entries or photos of herself representing Miss World America.
Zhu tweeted that & # 39; Miss World America & # 39; s State / National / Chief Director accused me of being racist, Islamophobic and insensitive. They robbed me of my Miss Michigan title because of my refusal to fit a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence and & # 39; insensitive & # 39; statistical tweets. & # 39;
& # 39; I have seen this happen before, & # 39; told Zhu, a fan of Donald Trump, the Detroit Free Press, adding: & # 39; It's just not good to be prejudiced against people who just have a different political vision than you. & # 39;
The first tweet that, according to Zhu, led to her being removed from the parade was from 2018, when she was a student at the University of Central Florida. On the World Hijab day on campus, she said she chose not to fit a hijab when the offer was made.
Instead, according to the Detroit Free Press, she went to Twitter and wrote: & # 39; So you're telling me it's now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed by Islam? & # 39;
Before her title was taken away from her and she said she could no longer represent the parade, she had prepared to compete in the preliminaries and finals
Zhu believes that tweets about refusing to try a hijab and black-on-black gun violence were the reports that Miss World America officials were unhappy about
Zhu shared a photo of herself on Facebook with a gun, wearing a MAGA hat and standing in front of a MAGA board. She said that as Miss Michigan, she had no intention of using her social media accounts to promote her conservative political views
The second tweet, Zhu said, was a response to another Twitter user, in which Zhu wrote: Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Solve problems within your own community before blaming others. & # 39;
Zhu deleted both tweets at one point.
She said her tweet about women who & # 39; get used to oppression by Islam & # 39; was intended as a comment on how & # 39; in the Middle East so many women are being punished and stoned for refusing to wear a hijab & # 39 ;.
What the tweet about & # 39; black kill & # 39; regards, Zhu said that sentiment applied to & # 39; every community & # 39; and that people must solve things in your own community before they play at others and try to find a problem there & # 39 ;.
She added: & # 39; It's not a problem against black people. I'm clearly not a racist or something. & # 39;
On Twitter Thursday, Zhu wrote: & # 39; Someone called me an Islamophobia because I didn't want to wear a hijab. Someone called me a racist because I recognize that black people kill more blacks than the police. Good luck to those who are as gullible as this one. & # 39;
She noted that Miss World America did not provide a sufficiently clear definition of what & # 39; insensitive & # 39; means and that she still does not believe she has placed insensitive functions.
Popular conservatives, including Jack Psobiec, showed their support for Zhu on Twitter
Conservative singer Joy Villa has also weighed about the problem, tweeting & # 39; # stophebias & # 39;
Zhu told me Yahoo! Lifestyle that Miss World America & # 39; people who represent another side of the story don't let them represent them.
& # 39; They just want someone to say things that people want to hear. And there are many things in this world that are hard to hear, but it is the truth, & she added.
Despite tweeting under the @PoliticalKathy username, Zhu told Yahoo that she was not going to use her social media platforms to promote her conservative political views, but only to encourage people to speak up for what they believe in.
But when she was released from the parade, she said, she doesn't get the opportunity to prove it.
& # 39; It is not even a crown or a procession, & # 39; said Zhu. & # 39; The point is that people really discriminate against people with conservative views. & # 39;
Popular and prominent conservatives have come across Zhu & # 39; s defense on social media.
& # 39; This is insane. @MissWorldLtd Beauty Queen @PoliticalKathy stripped of its Miss Michigan title for … BE CONSERVATIVE? Unbelievable. #stopthebias, & # 39; singer Joy Villa tweeted.
& # 39; Yet another example of #Magaphobia, & # 39; wrote One America News host Jack Posobiec.
Miss World America has not yet commented on the situation.
