She then invited Trump to speak with her and her sister, 18-year-old trans advocate Juliet, about trans rights.

"@realDonaldTrump u gave me the honor 2 sing at your inauguration," she wrote. "Pls give me & my sis the honor 2 meet with u 2 talk #transgender rights."

The Evancho sisters appeared on Good Morning America this morning to share their views.

"I guess I just want to enlighten him on what my sister, I’ve seen her go through every single day in school and people just like her, what they deal with," Jackie explained. "The discrimination, it’s terrible."

She added that Trump had not responded to her request for a conversation, but did say she would perform at an inauguration for him again, because it was "not politics."

That may not sit well with supporters of trans rights. Evancho received criticism from those within the LGTBQ community who saw her decision to sing for Trump as hypocritical in light of her sister's background.
