Obama’s grandmother asks Trump not to deport immigrants

Following the election of Donald Trump as president of the United States, president Obama’s paternal grandmother Sarah Obama has called on Donald Trump to learn from what she considers Obama’s leadership skills.

She has also advised Donald Trump to review his plans on immigrants.

Sarah Obama said: “There has been a notion that immigrants should be deported, these are all children of God. Now that he wants to deport Kenyans back home then it means that Americans living in other countries should also be sent back home. That should not be the case.”

Sarah Obama says her grandson, Barrack Obama whose mandate is coming to an end, should emulate his late father and focus on helping others.

Obama met with Trump on Thursday to discuss modalities of a peaceful transfer of power.
