One of Stanford University's most outspoken conservative students is the son of Susan Rice, a controversial administrator from the Obama-era.

How has he supported Trump?

John David Rice-Cameron, 20, is on a mission to “Make Stanford Great Again.”

Rice-Cameron told Fox News this week that the Tea Party movement inspired him to turn from his parents’ liberal beliefs and become a conservative.

Rice, who served as a United Nations ambassador, was strongly disliked by conservatives and Republicans. She attempted to blame a 2012 terrorist attack on two American facilities in Benghazi, Libya, on an offensive YouTube video.

Rice-Cameron said he and his parents have a good relationship, even though they are both Democrats and political polar opposites.

“My mother and I have a great relationship, and my mother believes strongly in the free and respectful exchange of ideas,” Rice-Cameron told Fox News.

“We disagree on most of the standard Republican/Democrat disagreements. However, we agree that America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and thus, we believe that America has an important role to play as a force for liberty and justice on the world stage," he explained.

He and his mother share similar views on free trade and “robust American engagement in Africa." They also both believe Russia poses a major threat to American interests.

Rice-Cameron’s father, Ian Cameron, is a former long-time producer and executive for ABC News.

Rice-Cameron is a sophomore at the Ivy League campus, where he serves as president of the College Republicans and as activism director for the California College Republicans.

He follows in his mother’s footsteps in that he is not afraid of controversy.

Rice-Cameron has hosted controversial expert on radical Islam Robert Spencer, pushed for the resignation of a professor with Antifa ties and pressured the university to reverse its decision to ban American flags on their club t-shirts. On Tuesday, his campus group hosted Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens for a “Make Stanford Great Again!” event.

Are their views similar in any way?

Despite their different political views, Rice-Cameron’s parents reportedly encouraged him to debate and discuss his views.

“I’m driven by a fundamental sense of urgency over the fact that Americans are slowly losing their liberty, and I believe that liberty is being valued less and less,” Rice-Cameron told Fox News. “I want to turn the tide, and college campuses are crucial to doing so.”
