When Miss Texas, Margana Wood, was called to the stage to answer a question from the panel she gave a great and brutally honest response.
Wood was asked specifically about the white supremacist rally that took place in Charlottesville in August:
Last month, a demonstration of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and the KKK in Charlottesville turned violent and a counterprotester was killed. The president said there was shared blame with “very fine people on both sides.” Were there? Tell me yes or no, and explain.
I think that the white supremacist issue — it was very obvious that it was a terrorist attack, and I think that President Donald Trump should have made a statement earlier addressing the fact, and making sure that all Americans feel safe in this country. That is the number one issue right now.
