Jackie Evancho, the 16-year-old who sang the national anthem at President Trump‘s Inauguration, has expressed her disapproval with the president’s recent announcement that he plans to repeal Barack Obama’s legislation on public school bathrooms for transgender students.
Evancho, who has a transgender sister, took to Twitter to express her dismay on the decision, writing, “I am obviously disappointed in the @POTUS decision to send the #transgender bathroom issue to the states to decide. #sisterlove.”

The NY Post reported that a source close to the singer said, “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.”
Juliet, Evancho’s sister, is currently suing her Pittsburgh school district over its decision to stop students from using the bathroom based on their gender identity.
