President Trump is a former owner of the Miss Universe franchise, which owns Miss USA, a competing beauty pageant to Miss America.
Miss Missouri was asked whether or not Trump colluded with Russian Federation and Miss New Jersey was asked if Confederate statues should be torn down.
In the question and answer portion of the show, the newly crowned "Miss America" was asked about her opinion on the decision of President #Donald Trump's administration to pull out the USA from the Paris accord. "So whether you believe it or not, we need to be at that table".
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.
"There is evidence that climate change is existing and we need to be at that table". She choreographed her dance routine for the Miss America Talent Competition. By the time she advanced to the Q&A portion and was asked about the No. 1 item on her bucket list, Mund reiterated it once again. Since the age of six, Mund has been participating in beauty pageants and won titles including Little Miss, Miss Pre-Teen and Miss Junior Teen.
"It's important to have a woman's perspective", Cara told AP.

"Honestly? It was to get to Miss America and make it past the Top 10", Mund said.
Mund went on to defeat first runner-up Miss Missouri Jennifer Davis, second runner-up Miss New Jersey Kaitlyn Shoeffel, thid runner-up Miss District of Columbia Briana Kinsey, and fourth runner-up Miss Texas Morgana Wood, who also laid into Trump during the pageant.
She is the first contestant from her state to win the Miss America crown.
Mund, 23, was one of 51 contestants in the pageant, representing the 50 United States and the District of Columbia. "I'm thinking about everyone in Florida every single day", Miss Florida, Sara Zeng, said early in the broadcast.
Shortly after her speech, judges read the names of the remaining Top 15 finalists, which did not include her. Another contestant, Miss Texas Margana Wood, absolutely slayed her answer to what could have been an incredibly polarizing question, and the internet is loving it. Miss Mund sees her mother as her biggest role model in life and credits her mother for this on stage.
