Joy Villa, the artist who made waves earlier this year by wearing a pro-Trump dress to the Grammys, has a new song about America. She joined Tuesday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” to talk about the music video for her song “Make America Great Again” and why she believes YouTube is censoring conservative artists.

“It’s such a pro-America video,” Villa said of her new music video.

The independent artist explained that YouTube threatened to take down her video and sent a cease-and-desist letter, saying that someone who appears in the video had complained – even though Villa had verbal and signed releases from everyone featured in it.

“They’re definitely targeting, you know, conservative artists because it’s not the first time it’s happened,” she said.

Villa also talked about why her friend Kaya Jones has faced similar problems with YouTube, which Jones says has been changing the views on her pro-military and pro-America music video. A former Pussycat Doll, Jones recently released a new song called “What the Heart Don’t Know.”

“My video for “What the Heart Don’t Know” had over 62k views last night [Friday] and I have seen it drop as low as 53,000,” Jones said in a statement to TheBlaze last week. “The numbers fluctuate throughout the day but should be as high as 100,000 views today.”
