Palle has participated in multiple forums alongside other Asian healthcare leaders, as well as many American talk shows. She appeared on Sebastian Gorke’s Podcast among with Larry O’connor at WMAL DC and Mornings on the Mall with Mary Walter and Vince Coglianesse

Political Beliefs

Palle initially considered herself a Democratic Party (United States), but after attending a speech given by Barack Obama during his second term, she found herself disillusioned by the philosophies of Liberalism in the United States he espoused. She also considered his speech unpatriotic and divisive. She then read multiple books on Conservatism in the United States, revisited the US Constitution of the United States, and decided to become a Republican Party (United States).

In her 2019 run for local office, Palle's platform emphasized lower taxes, fiscal conservatism, Immigration reform in the United States reform, responsible Urban Development|, and protecting the community. She also gained the reputation for answering constituents' concerns personally when they reached out to her.[7] In a 2019 interview, Palle said that "I feel that as a Republican candidate, I’m very focused on restoring fiscal discipline. I’m not very sure if my liberal friends are.”[8]

Palle's Twitter bio summarizes her platform as Free market, Anti-abortion movement, #AmericaFirst and pro-Donald Trump, and pro-2nd Amendment.[9]

She is a staunch proponent of law and order, and has spoken at multiple rallies on behalf of "Bolster the Blue" and similar organizations supporting police. She advocates for the Republican Party to conduct more outreach to minority communities, both ethnic and religious, and she herself works to reach recent immigrants and students to help them understand the US Constitution. She also believes that federal programs to support traditional family roles must be offered.

Political Involvement

Palle is currently vice chair of campaigns and election with the Fairfax GOP, and has worked with the organization for several years.[10][11]

In November 2017, Palle joined Ivanka Trump’s delegation to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, where she spoke to fellow healthcare executives about the need to establish more comprehensive acute rehabilitation facilities across India, particularly in rural states such as her birthplace.[12][13]

Palle also made several media appearances to discuss her candidacy for Sully District Supervisor. In September 2019, she was interviewed on the radio talk show "Mornings on the Mall" hosted by Mary Walter (radio) and Vince Coglianese[14] and in October 2019, she was a guest on the Larry O'Connor (radio host).[15] In November 2019, she was a guest on Sebastian Gorka's podcast America First with Sebastian Gorka.[16]

Palle also created the political campaign coalition Phir Ek Bari Trump Ki Dusari Pari, which works to rally Indian Americans in support of the Republican Party, particularly in the months leading up to the 2020 US Presidential election.

Phir Ek Bari Trump Ki Dusari Pari

Palle created and continues to run a global campaign encouraging Indian-Americans to move away from Democratic Party (United States). This campaign, Phir Ek Bari Trump Ki Dusari Pari, works to demonstrate that the Trump administration remaining in power is in the best interests of Indian Americans.

Phir Ek Bari Trump Ki Dusari Pari has been active on Twitter and Facebook since July 2020.[17][18]

The campaign's social media accounts share memes, political cartoons, Republican Sound bite, voter bloc stats, and Retweet from other Republican social media accounts, including Melania Trump, to motivate Americans of Indian descent to participate in the 2020 US Presidential election and help re-elect Trump. Some tweets and retweets repeat talking points about the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) being a Chinese disease.[19]

First Election Run, 2019-2020

From 2018 through November 2019, Palle ran for local office in the Sully district of Fairfax county in Fairfax, Virginia. The open position, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors, was nonpartisan but Palle ran against Democratic incumbent Kathy Smith,[2] and many of the two candidates' discussions came down to partisan approaches.

Her run was covered by a wide range of organizations, from local newspapers[20] to the Washington Post,[21] the International Network for Nepali Journalists (INNJA),[22] and Immigrationreform.com.[23] Commentators who saw Palle speak at various political forums and rallies often noted that she spoke on important issues directly, and was not averse to speaking against opponent Kathy Smith directly.[24]

Ultimately, Smith (D-Sully) won 22,259 votes (62.9%) to Palle's 13,064 (36.9%).[25][26][27] Smith's victory was part of a larger Democratic win that secured several legislative majorities across Virginia.[25]

Future Political Involvement

Palle has since appeared at events such as the anti-China rally on Capitol Hill in August 2020, where she said that her presence was a stand "against communist China bullying America and the global world."[28]

Her social media accounts are still regularly updated with pictures of Palle at Republican events. Her Facebook includes posts about turning Virginia red, supporting police, and rallying for Donald Trump's re-election,[29] while her Twitter promotes Republican events and conducts outreach on behalf of Trump's re-election.[30] She often retweets prominent Republicans, including Donald Trump Jr. and Candace Owens,
