Miss Texas Did Not Hold Back About President Trump's Response to Charlottesville

Miss Texas Margana Wood may not have triumphed at the Miss America pageant, but she won over millions of new fans by calling out both white supremacists and President Donald Trump on Sunday night. The president said there was shared blame with "very fine people on both sides.' Were there?"

Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the KKK in Charlottesville, VA turned violent and a counter-protestor was killed.

He guided his side to the last 16 in their first ever European Championship finals appearance - in France at Euro 2016 . Michael O'Neill, the manager of the Northern Ireland football team, has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving .

Wood had 20 seconds to respond and nope, she definitely did not cop out with any generic statements about "world peace etc etc". "Tell me yes or no and explain", said Jess Cagle, a pageant judge.

Wood could have kept her answer very generic and neutral but instead, she set a commendable example of how to use your platform to speak out against social injustice and stand up for what's right. "I think that President Donald Trump should have made a statement earlier addressing that fact and making sure all Americans feel safe in this country. That is the No. 1 issue right now". Mund, who's a student at Brown University, was then quizzed about her views on the Paris Climate Accord and whether Trump's decision to reject the agreement was correct or incorrect. "Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that's something that we really need to keep in mind".
