Rather than using her appearance at the Grammy’s to bash President Trump, singer songwriter Joy Villa stole the spotlight on the red carpet Sunday wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ dress that says ‘Trump’ on the back.

Liberals were outraged over Villa’s red, white and blue dress.
Just another silver spoon coon. I'd say Joy Villa is cancelled, but no one even knows who she is pic.twitter.com/TD8fPP3RMG

Within hours of wearing the ‘Make America Great Again Dress,’ Villa’s album sales skyrocketed in the sales ranking on Amazon. Her album ‘I Make the Static’ was previously ranked #543,202. Now it is currently ranked #3 on Amazon, selling better than both Beyonce and Lady Gaga.
The designer of the dress, named Andre Soriano says the Women’s March in Washington D.C. inspired him to design the dress.
Soriano said he was infuriated when his favorite singer declared that she wanted to “blow up the White House, prompting him to call him Villa about designing a dress to “unite the country.”
“We only have one President and that is President Trump. It’s NOT Hillary,” Soriano told Gateway Pundit. Just like Rosa Parks, we are going to stand up for our rights as Americans.”
“The dress was designed in love, it is all about love,” he added.
Soriano, who emigrated from the Philippines to the United States when he was 16, said he voted for Trump because “I love America and I believe in America.”
In a recent vlog, Villa explained to aspiring performing artists the importance of perservering in spite of criticism. She to “tell the haters to eff off, because they have no say over your life — and as a performing artist, people are going to criticize you ’til you’re black and blue.”
