Trump had not mentioned Mund or her comment on the Paris accord on Twitter as of early Monday morning. Both women made the Top 12 as finalists in the Miss America competition Sunday night. "Congratulations, you deserve it!"

"During the preliminary round of questions, Mund was asked about what's on top of her bucket list, to which she responded, "...to get to "Miss America" and make it past the top ten".

The Miss Louisiana Organization is extremely proud of Laryssa and her top 7 finish at Miss America! A few people using motorized chairs were ushered away so Mund could pose in front of a nearby pageant marker.

Mund's talent for the Miss America pageant was jazz dancing.

"It's important to have a woman's perspective", Mund, who had an internship in the Senate, told the AP.

Country singer Thomas Rhett then had a question for Miss North Dakota. "Those questions that were asked, and the way they were answered, showed a definitive lack of respect and decorum".

During the interview, Mund was asked about the USA withdrawal from the Paris accord on climate change. Once we reject that, we take ourselves out of the negotiation table. "If we do find evidence that they have had collusion with Russian Federation, the justice system should do their due diligence and they should be punished accordingly", she replied.
