We don’t know for sure whether Malia Obama voted for Hillary Clinton or not in this last election, but Malia’s latest move is a good indicator that she’s no fan of President Trump’s policies. Just four days after Fmr. President Barack Obama left the Oval Office, Malia made it clear just how disappointed she was in Donald Trump by joining a rally protesting his plans to revive the Dakota Access pipeline project.
Malia Obama, who will be heading off to Harvard University later this year, was one of approximately 100 people who gathered on Main Street at the Sundance Film Festival to let it be known how upset she was with President Trump’s plan to move forward with the controversial transport system.
Later, Malia was also one of the select individuals in attendance at a private event with Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault, a man who just last month publicly applauded her father when he put a halt to the pipeline after months of protests at the site.
Actress Shailene Woodley, who has been using her celebrity for much of the past two years to bring awareness to this cause, revealed that Malia had attended both the rally and private event in an interview with Democracy Now.
“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. Also, to witness a human being and a woman coming into her own outside of her family and outside of the attachments that this country has on her, but someone who’s willing to participate in democracy because she chooses to, because she recognizes, regardless of her last name, that if she doesn’t participate in democracy, there will be no world for her future children.”
