More about THE PRESIDENTS
In 1985, Barack Obama moved to Chicago, where he got his start in community organizing on the city’s South Side, working to help rebuild communities devastated by the closure of local steel plants.
The President called that time in his life “the best education I ever had, better than anything I got at Harvard Law School.” He has credited that experience as crucial to finding his identity—something that shaped his path to the White House.
In his first term, President George W. Bush won Congressional approval of widespread tax-cut bills and the Medicare prescription drug coverage program for seniors; signed the No Child Left Behind Act into law; allocated billions of dollars to fight HIV/AIDS around the world; created the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, and withdrew America’s support of the 1997 Kyoto Protocol, which was signed by President Bill Clinton and was intended to combat worldwide global warming (Bush said he was concerned that the international agreement’s requirements would hurt the U.S. economy).
Washington DC (CNN) – Former President Bill Clinton reflected on the months of protests that have swept across America in response to the deaths unarmed black men at the hands of law enforcement, saying in an interview airing Friday that the country needs to make “people feel that everybody matters again.”
“The fundamental problem you have anywhere is when people think their lives and the lives of their children don’t matter, they are somehow disposable, just like a paper napkin after a lunch at a restaurant or something,” Clinton told CNN En Español. “If we want our freedom to be in deed as well as word in America, we have to make people feel that everybody matters again.”
