The Obamas may not be out of office for less than a week, but they have already come out against some of the proposals of President Trump. Although Malia Obama is getting ready for an important internship, she took time out of her busy schedule to join a rally to protest Trump’s plans to revive the Dakota Access Pipeline Project. The project has fallen at odds with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, as noted in the Daily Mail.
Obama was part of a group that was assembled at the Sundance Film Festival. They stood out in the blistering cold and help up signs such as “Exist. Resist. Rise” and “Impeach corporate control.” Interestingly, even though the second sign had the “I” word, the statement had nothing to do with President Trump. Instead, the group was showing their adamant disapproval of the Sundance Film Festival for allowing avowed Dakota Access Pipeline supporter Chase Bank to become a sponsor at the festival.
Interestingly enough, the youngest Obama is already making a name for herself for charting her own course. Even though the 44th President of the United States and the rest of his family elected to go on a post family vacation, Malia decided to go to Utah because of her internship responsibilities. She apparently attended the nearby film festival on her own time. I’m sure the Standing Rock Sioux appreciates her show of support for their cause.
