Jackie Evancho and her trans sister are angry about President Donald Trump revoking bathroom protections for transgender students, but not so angry that the singer would refuse to perform for the president again.
"The reason why I did sing for the inauguration was not politics," the "America's Got Talent" star told GMA, "It was for the honor and the privilege to perform for my country. And that will stay the same, I think."
Evancho said she wanted to "enlighten" the president about her sister's experience as a school-aged transgender child.
"I guess I just want to enlighten him on what my sister, I've seen her go through every single day in school and people just like her, what they deal with," she said. "The discrimination, it's terrible."
Evancho's sister Juliet said: "I feel like Donald Trump needs to know that being in such an unsafe environment won't do any good for not only the transgenders in the LGBT community, but as well as anyone as a whole."
After news hit that the Trump administration was moving to revoke federal guidelines counseling public schools on allowing transgender students to use bathrooms and changing facilities based on their chosen gender identity, a plethora of celebrities erupted in anger and spoke out against the president -- Evancho included.
