The woman who sat behind President Donald Trump during his NBC News town hall Thursday in Miami and nodded along as he made many of his points has been identified as Mayra Joli.
Joli is an immigration attorney who ran for Congress in 2018 as a pro-Trump candidate, according to the Miami Herald.

Trump asked her where she is from and she said, “I’m from the Dominican Republic, but I’m American.
