Bill Clinton’s 2-year-old granddaughter went to protest
Over the weekend, Bill Clinton’s 2-year-old granddaughter Charlotte went to her first protest. The toddler attended the “Today, I Am a Muslim Too” event on Sunday, in the company of her mother, Chelsea Clinton.
36-year-old Chelsea Clinton took her 2-year-old daughter Charlotte to her first protest rally, on Sunday. The ladies joined the crowd of the “Today, I am a Muslim Too” event, in New York City. The former First Daughter captioned the vibe of the protest with a Twitter photo and revealed that her daughter was by her side:
“Thank you to all who organized #IAmAMuslimToo today – Charlotte’s 1st protest rally. #NoBanNoWallNoRaids”, Bill Clinton’s daughter tweeted.
“Today, I Am a Muslim Too” was organized as a reaction to President Donald Trump’s plan to ban Muslim from 7 countries from entering the United States. Trump signed an executive order to temporarily restrict access in the country to immigrants in late January. His move sparked outrage and numerous celebrities have spoken against it.
Among them, Jennifer Lawrence, who wrote on Facebook that a great number of Americans understand “that someone’s race or religion should never keep them in harm’s way. It should be every person’s duty to help and protect anyone no matter their nationality”. She continued: “I pray for sanity and compassion to return to the White House.”
Alyssa Milano shared a photo of her best friend, who is Muslim and wrote: “My best friend, Alaa Mohammad Khaled, is Muslim. His parents were Palestinian refugees. His brother is DJ Khaled. #RefugeesWelcome”’

Michael Moore, Ellen DeGeneres, Rob Reiner, Judd Apatow, Rihanna, Barbra Streisand, Ashton Kutcher, Maggie Gyllenhaal and many other high profile people have made their opinion known about Trump’s ban and they were all against it.
Some celebrities have joined the protest on Sunday, too. Hollywood icon Susan Sarandon, participated in the rally, in Times Square.
Today she tweeted, in response to her being booed at the protest.
I’m not going to let a few boos stop me from standing in solidarity. Trump wants us to be divided, so let's use our voices for the Good. https://t.co/l9xFGQ2zdy
