The mystery “nodding woman” who went viral during President Trump’s town hall Thursday night has been revealed as a pro-Trump immigration attorney and former beauty queen who once ran for Congress.
Mayra Joli was identified as the woman who nodded enthusiastically and even flashed a thumbs-up sign behind the president as he fielded questions from undecided voters in Miami, according to the Miami Herald.
The fervent Trump supporter even greeted the president after the town hall, posting video of the encounter to her Facebook.
“We have your back! You are the best! I’m from the Dominican Republic, but I’m American. I’m an American,” she tells Trump.
“Sammy Sosa? A friend of mine,” Trump replies.
“Sammy Sosa — he endorsed me. Mr. President, I was running for Congress and he endorsed me!” Joli shouts back.
