“The designer behind Joy Villa’s pro-Trump, ‘Make America Great Again’ Grammys gown, Filipino immigrant Andre Soriano, tells THR that he is supportive of the new president despite his controversial immigration ban, and that the message of the dress was one of positivity,” Sam Reed and Lesley McKenzie report for The Hollywood Reporter. “”

Soriano “said he is a proud American and believes that he is an example of the American dream,” Reed and McKenzie report. “He is a naturalized citizen. ‘There are a lot of people that are in power that really misconstrued what this country stands for,’ he said. ‘I love this country. I’m from the Philippine islands, I am a proud American. I really love this country. I am a minority, Joy is black. America is about immigrants.'”

Reed and McKenzie report, “As for the inspiration behind the pro-Trump dress, he says, ‘I heard that somebody wanted to bomb the White House. And then I saw the Women’s March. … Joy Villa is all about love with her music. I’m like, ‘Joy, We have to make a statement on what is right for our country, of what we believe in, for the Constitution.””
