She withstood criticism and sang for him at the inauguration, but now, 16-year-old singer Jackie Evancho is speaking out against President Donald Trump over his decision Wednesday to rescind Barack Obama’s progressive legislation that gave transgender students the right to use the bathroom that corresponds with their gender identities.

Evancho has a transgender sister, Juliet. The singer tweeted her displeasure of the President’s decision, saying, “I am obviously disappointed in the @POTUS decision to send the #transgender bathroom issue to the states to decide. #sisterlove.”

She followed up her initial tweet with another one asking Trump to meet with her and sister about transgender rights: “Pls give me & my sis the honor 2 meet with u 2 talk #transgender rghts.”

“She was the only person brave enough to sing at Trump’s inauguration, and now she’s being brave enough to stand up to him,” a source close to Evancho told Page Six.

When Evancho sang the national anthem at the inauguration, Juliet was not there. She was going undergoing gender reassignment surgery in Philadelphia.

Evancho was criticized by trans activists because of the incoming administration’s views on LGBTQ rights. However, during and even after the campaign, Trump indicated multiple times that he would protect LGBTQ and transgender rights.
