Balvin was supposed to perform at the Miss USA event on July 12, but canceled in solidarity with Mexico, whose citizens were deeply offended after Trump said “they’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crime, they’re rapists, and some I assume are good people” when announcing his candidacy for the Republican Party primaries.
