A photo of Little Miss Flint meeting Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is going viral.

Several people compared the photo to the photo of when she met President Barack Obama. The two show a very different picture, but the 9-year-old's mother said that's not the case.

"Mari was not terrified of that man, she still wants to ask him her question. We had to get through the crowd twice to get his attention since he walked out the opposite way he came in," Lulu Brezzell said on Facebook.

The photo has gained national attention, but Brezzell insists Amariyanna Copeny was not scared of Trump. Instead, she was scared of the people yelling at him.

Mari said she was nervous because she never met Trump before.

"I was scared Secret Service would tackle me for touching him and there was a lot of people around yelling," she said.
