President Trump’s presidency is an unprecedented one to say least. Never has America has an administration with this many suspicious ties to Russia. Trump’s rise has even inspired people to join the resistance against him.
In fact, JFK’s grandson and son of Caroline Kennedy, John (Jack) Kennedy Scholossberg, had his first televised interview on Friday.
What inspired him to step out? Well, of course, the family’s political history. The 24- year-old also told Today’s Matt Lauer that he also was inspired by former President Obama.
“I’m inspired by my family’s legacy of public service. It’s something that I’m very proud of. But I’m still trying to make my own way and figure things out. So stay tuned — I don’t know what I’m going to do.”
Kennedy graduated from Yale and will be attending Harvard Law School in the fall.
‘In 2008, I was inspired by President Obama’s vision for America and all the promises that he laid out for our country. This award really recognizes that he made tough choices over the last 8 years to execute on that vision — to give people health care, to get serious about climate change, and to reach out to international partners and really improve America’s standing in the world. And that takes political courage.’
‘I think we’re seeing today it’s pretty easy to criticize without offering solutions. And President Obama did not do that. He really had the courage to govern responsibly.’
