"It was a big night for Miss North Dakota, #Cara Mund, as she was crowned "#Miss America 2018" in Atlantic City, besting 50 other candidates for the title. On Sunday, Mund told judges that there was evidence for the existence of climate change and that it was a "bad decision" for President Donald Trump to withdraw the United States from the agreement. Her dream is to be the first female governor of North Dakota.
She's beauty and she's grace, she's Miss America! "I do believe it's a bad decision", she said. 'Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table and that's something that we really need to keep in mind'.
In fairness to ABC and the Miss America pageant, another contestant answered a Trump-hating question about Charleston "correctly"... Mund, a former Senate intern, said she wants to see more women elected to all levels of government.
The Bismarck resident says that even though she doesn't agree with the president on this issue, it doesn't mean she won't support him.
