Malia Obama joins protest against President Donald Trump
Ex-President Barack Obama’s daughter, Malia Obama, was reportedly spotted among protesters, protesting against President Trump’s plan to revive the Dakota Access Pipeline Project.
The 18-year-old girl, who will be in Havard later this year, was among approximately 100 people who took to Main Street at the Sundance Film Festival while it was still snowing, to show their dissatisfaction with President Trump’s decision to move ahead with the controversial transport system, with placards reading ‘Exist. Resist. Rise.’ and ‘Impeach corporate control.’ It was however, Shailene Woodley, who has been campaigning for the cause using her celebrity status, that told Democracy Now, that Malia was part of the protesters.
‘It was amazing to see Malia. I saw her last night when we did the event with Chairman Dave Archambault. And it was incredible to see her there,’ said Woodley, 25, when asked about the former first daughter’s very public support of the cause.
