President Barack Obama called on Americans to act against Islamaphobia, while touting gun control and Obamacare during a Twitter question and answer session.
Most of the screened questions were fairly light, such as his greatest memory, as he goes into the final year of his presidency.
What is your greatest memory while being president?? #AskPOTUS— abi|| cucumber (@nialler4th_lee) January 14, 2016
the night aca passed; standing on truman balcony with all staff whod made it happen, knowing we'd helped millions. https://t.co/eUr3rZ3UN7— President Obama (@POTUS) January 14, 2016
Another questioner characterized the mistreatment of Muslims that “has become so huge” in the country.
so we all need to speak out against bias and stereotypes, to protect the freedom of others, and our own as well.— President Obama (@POTUS) January 14, 2016
The issue of gun control also came up, but Obama had fewer contentious comments than in the past.
Mr. President, I sincerely want to learn about the gun debate (& be more a discussion). What do you recommend as a resource(s)? #AskPOTUS— Pearce Korb, M.D. (@drpearcekorb) January 14, 2016
There were more than a few questions with #AskPotus that the president didn’t respond to.
