Will Donald Trump Disappoint Inauguration Singer Jackie Evancho?

When Donald Trump was sworn in as US President in January, Jackie Evancho was there to perform the national anthem. She decided to perform despite calls for her to withdraw, and afterwards she received plenty of backlash. Even though she said she did not do it for Trump specifically, the fact is that she saved him from some embarrassment he didn't need. And for that, many anti-Trump people were more than disappointed.

Fast forward two months, and Miss Evancho is requesting to meet Donald Trump, and not for the first time either. The reason? She wants to talk about trans rights, in light of Trump's decision to cancel former President Obama's executive order requiring schools to let trans students use the appropriate bathroom. This is also personal for Miss Evancho, as her own sister is trans. So far, Donald Trump has not responded to the request.

Will Donald Trump end up disappointing Jackie Evancho? It may be too soon to tell. But if he does, what does this say about him? Especially given the fact that Jackie sang for him despite calls to pull out? This would be beyond any sense of humanity, right?
