âIf people want to actually make money in this country with a product or get jobs they need to also see thereâs 50% of Americans who support the president. And Iâve unfriendedâ¦Un-followed certain companies that use in their promotions, âhey we donât support the presidentâ or âdown with Trump.â I write them letters, I say âlisten, you know I buy your products, I support the president, why are you alienating me?â So these celebrities and these people who are doing that have a responsibility to all their fans not to just the fans who think like them,â Villa said during an appearance on FOX Business.
Villa stole the show on the Grammyâs red carpet after wearing a tribute dress for Donald Trump. She said she has struck a chord with younger generations.
âItâs difficult to challenge for sure because, I donât feel as supported as my peers, but I get so many letters from people â teenagers, 13-year-old conservatives who say because of your dress I now stand up for my conservative beliefs,â she said.
On July 4th, Villa released a new song, titled âMake America Great Again,â which has climbed to number four on Amazonâs best-sellers list. Villa attributes her recent success to her political beliefs.
âMy whole platform is love for the country and love for America. What I wanted to do with that dress and continue with the song is just to provide something that is unifying,â she said.
In the song, Villa says âwe can come back twice as strong,â while she believes that âAmerica is in an unrest period,â love and tolerance can conquer the violence.
âIâm actually proud to be American so I want to give that voice to people and thatâs why I wrote this song,â she said.
