This international human rights lawyer knows a thing or two, to say the very least. Forget about her handsome hubby, her keen sense of style, and the fact that she is Lebanese for a second… and focus on the fact that she has a CV to kill and knows how this complicated world of ours works nowadays.
During an inspiring speech at The Texas Conference for Women this past week, she offered Mr. U.S. President Donald Trump a firm warning regarding what his proposed policies would actually mean and implicate.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Amal took a shot at Mr. Trump’s policies explaining how they would hurt Muslim Americans, as well as Muslims globally. Referring to when he stated “that there should be a religious test imposed on entering the U.S. or the fact that there should be state-sponsored torture or that families of suspected terrorists should all be killed…” she expressed how "all of those things are violations of international human rights law and the values that underlie that."
She also spoke about how the international community is worried about the course the United States is heading in, and that the U.S. could end up losing its "moral standing" all over the world.
In the end, Amal Clooney didn’t express anything that most of us weren’t thinking already; however, hearing it from her simply confirms our beliefs. Did she have anything at all to say about this new President on a positive note as she spoke to this big group of women? She did state that she was optimistic about Donald Trump’s plans to fight ISIS. That is one area we can all agree on and hope for.
