Fox & Friends recently caught up with the 12-year-old Trump fan who went viral back in March over her passionate interview supporting the president at CPAC.

The young trump fan showed up clearly in full support of the president, donning a Trump t-shirt, hat, leggings, backpack, and Trump-themed gold shoes.

“He is doing the best job as president you could ever do,” Millie told Fox & Friends.

Mille revealed to them that she’d since run for school president, and won, signaling some potential for a future in politics.

When Fox & Friends asked her if she was going to be the first female president she said it’s not up to her.

“I don’t know. If the country needs me, I will run. I don’t care about being the first female president,” she answered.

In the interview, she said she’s happy with what President Trump has accomplished since her last interview.

“He has done more good in the past six months than [Former President] Obama has in the past eight years,” she said.

While Millie’s interest in politics is likely influenced by her parents, her father told Fox & Friends it’s Millie who reads the books and decides for herself what she believes.

In the viral video recorded earlier this year, Millie March talks passionately to a reporter who asked her why she was drawn to Trump.

“He talked about all the issues we were facing, all the problems. [I thought] OK, that’s normal. Every politician does that. Then something extraordinary happened. He said how to fix them,” she explained.

The girl’s enthusiastic words got her a chance to meet the president and also Vice President Mike Pence.

Millie said one of the problems with the country was education.

“The teachers union controls everything, so I like how Donald trump put in charge of education a lady name Betsy, I think—Miss Betsy Devos—and, I mean, she’s just great. She’s doing everything we need to and I heavily support school choice.”

“My mommy was a Ted Cruz supporter in the primaries. I told her on the primary, on the day of voting, I told her she needs to vote for Trump, she needs to vote for Trump. She didn’t listen to me but that’s ok. But now after the primaries, she realized the mistake she did.”

When asked what she wanted to be when she grows up, Millie had a remarkably detailed future planned out for herself.

“I’m going to graduate from Penn State University, be in the army for 5 years, be a police officer, be a homicide detective, be a detective, be a private investigator—all while having the hobby of an Egyptologist—and an astronomer. And then I’ll retire to become a judge, and then—if the country really needs me—I’ll run for president,” she told the reporter.

She said later in the CPAC video “Without Trump, I wouldn’t be here. I mean wouldn’t be at CPAC, I would just be at home watching T.V. playing video games, watching Disney, maybe watching a little bit of news but not as much as I do now.
