President Obama speaks out against President Trump “American values are at stake.”
Former President Barack Obama’s office released a statement today supporting the protests going on around the country, and speaking out against discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion, saying “American values are at stake.”
Kevin Lewis, spokesman for President Obama in his post-presidency, said that Obama —
“is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country.
Citizens exercising their Constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.
With regard to comparisons to President Obama’s foreign policy decisions, as we’ve heard before, the president fundamentally disagrees with the notion of discriminating against individuals because of their faith or religion.”
