Miss America Contestant Slams Trump, Claims President Is 'Biggest Issue' America Faces

Coming in as the first runner-up is Miss Connecticut Bridget Oei, while Miss Louisiana Holli Conway came in as the night's second runner-up. In addition to singing, she also writes songs and composes music and is an advocate for cancer research, according to the University of North Carolina School of the Arts. It went "Love, love, love, love, is the only thing that matters to me, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey".

"It took a lot of perseverance to get here", Franklin said after her win.

The judges narrowed the field of 51 candidates during the pageant Sunday night from Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall.

The Wrap reports that Madeline Collins was given the question, "what is the biggest issue facing Americans today", as part of the program's "interview segment", which replaced the swimsuit competition in a change made earlier this year.

This year marks the first time the broadcast will not include a swimsuit competition.

The NFL protests have enraged President Donald Trump, who once owned the Miss Universe pageant, a separate organization. "We are a multi-faceted people".

On the same night the National Football League's season opener featured Nike's controversial Colin Kaepernick ad, one Miss America contestant advanced through the preliminary round after addressing the NFL kneeling protests.

IPhone 9 is not the name for Apple's 6.1-inch handset
The iPhone 9 will be the only iPhone to come with LCD display this year, while the other two will have OLED displays on board. According to the report, the iPhone XS with 5.8-inch screen will be priced $1079, which is roughly around Rs 78,000.

Gretchen Carlson, a 1989 Miss America victor who went on to become a TV commentator and the pageants' current chairman, said in a statement that Miss America would "represent a new generation of female leaders focused on scholarship, social impact, talent and empowerment".

Cara Mund, who was crowned a year ago while competing as Miss North Dakota, accused Miss America leadership of silencing and bullying her after she was crowned.

We should let them know that "we as Americans are supporting them and that we are there to help them", she suggested, according to The Associated Press.

"I was told I could never be Miss America because of my size", she said, adding she is comfortable with who she is.

Franklin is the first victor after the Miss America Organization announced a major change for the historic pageant. They deny doing any of that, saying they have been working tirelessly to move the organization into the future.

With the exception of passing the crown to Franklin, Mund was noticeably absent from most of Sunday's ceremony.
