IRVING, Texas — The Texas teenager, who was handcuffed after taking a homemade clock to school, is making a special trip to the White House on Monday.
Ahmed Mohamed, 14, will meet with President Obama. The president was hoping to see the invention that sparked conversation nationwide, but it’s still with the Irving Police Department in Texas.
Mohamed is scheduled to enjoy a night of science and stargazing on the South Lawn. The president personally invited him out for “Astronomy Night.”
The high school freshman, who has since withdrawn from the Irving Independent School District following his arrest, arrived in Washington, D.C. over the weekend.
He was honored Sunday night by Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), receiving the “American Muslim of the Year Award.”
He told the group he wants to fight discrimination. When asked what he’ll talk about with the president, he said he’d ask for a White House pen.
President Obama supported Ahmed, tweeting on September 16, “Cool clock, Ahmed. Want to bring it to the White House?” after teachers mistook the teenager’s science project for a fake bomb.
“I built the clock to impress my teacher,” Ahmed said in September. “But when I showed it to her, she thought it was a threat to her. It was really sad that she took the wrong impression of it — and later that day, I was arrested for it.”
Following his arrest, the hashtag #IStandwithAhmed took the Internet by storm as people questioned if the inventive teen who likes to tinker with electronics and dreams of attending MIT was targeted because of his name or religion.
School leaders in Irving, a Dallas suburb, said they wished the more than 1 million people commenting on the clock controversy via Twitter had all their facts straight. And they said if a similar situation happened, they’d have handled it the same way.
“We’re never going to take chances with student safety,” said Lesley Weaver, a spokeswoman with the Irving Independent School District.

Developments in Presidential Race, Trump does Terribly at Forum as Clinton shines
November is lurking around the corner and will be here before you know it, so my question to you is, have you decided who you will vote for? I have, and I proudly say my choice is Hillary Rodham Clinton. I am informing you all that there are ample development in the race for the presidency of the United States…
November is lurking around the corner and will be here before you know it, so my question to you is, have you decided who you will vote for? I have, and I proudly say my choice is Hillary Rodham Clinton. I am informing you all that there are ample development in the race for the presidency of the United States.
First of all, Donald Trump, according to Kristina Vong’s article at Thehill.com, wrongly corrected a veteran Marine during a forum. The veteran, a woman named Rachel Fredericks, asked Mr. Trump how he plans to stop 20 veterans from committing suicide, daily. Trump tried to correct the woman, who needed no correction. He said it is actually 22, trying to emerge correct, when he was essentially incorrect.
Mr. Trump also does not have a real plan to defeat ISIS, as “his plan is to have a plan” according to Igor Bobic at the Huffington Post. He also insulted military leaders calling them embarrassments to the country when they were under President Obama. He wants to give the generals 30 days to come up with a plan to defeat ISIS. Of course, this even makes it more obvious that Mr. Trump does not have a plan to defeat ISIS. Why, then did he call our current president the founder of ISIS? How can you give your vote to someone so unprepared and unfit for the presidency that constitutes a whole country? Sorry to say, but Donald Trump is not someone to vote for, at least not as US President!
According to Sean Colarossi at PoliticusUSA.com, a presidential forum highlighted how prepared Trump and Clinton are compared to each other, with Clinton appearing as the more prepared one, very easily. Clinton was engaged with questions, expressed gratitude, and was very prolific and intelligible in her responses. To reiterate, Trump has not a plan to defeat ISIS, where Hillary has a well thought-out plan. She outlined her plan, entailing it could take any form and she iterated and supports the idea that terror suspects should not be able to purchase firearms. Clinton also covered issues like mental health, illuminating the fact that it is overlooked, and mental health should no longer be stigmatized and victims of mental disorders should have access to resources. On the other hand, Trump gave generic answers like that he knows what is going on in the world. Also according to Colarossi’s article, Trump showed as an “empty suit” and “showed he is not prepared to be commander-in-chief” and that the contrast between him and Clinton could not be clearer”; this essentially means Clinton showed to be immensely more prepared to lead and did not focus on attacking others, like Trump’s approach does.
Lastly, Donald Trump has insulted women, children, ethnic groups, religious groups, his opponent, our current president, the military, and the list goes on. He is patronizing and unprepared to preside over our country as well. He constantly attacks others, with no action in mind. Consider if you want to have him as president, seriously!
Senator Elizabeth Warren Highlights that Trump is a “Racist Bully” and that a Vote for Jill Stein Would Only Help Trump
Senator Elizabeth Warren recently, and I must say, very appropriately, called Donald Trump a “racist bully.” She said also that a vote for the Green Party’s presidential nominee, Jill Stein, is essentially a vote for Donald Trump…
Senator Elizabeth Warren recently, and I must say, very appropriately, called Donald Trump a “racist bully.” She said also that a vote for the Green Party’s presidential nominee, Jill Stein, is essentially a vote for Donald Trump.
Adding to her speech at Roxbury Community College, the senator said, Trump has constantly proven to be a “thin-skinned, racist bully.” She then said his approach is hateful, with parts of his campaign being based on hate and that it is not characteristic of our country: that our country “is better than that.”
Warren then took the stance that, no, voters should not vote for Dr. Jill Stein over Secretary and Democratic Presidential Nominee, Hillary Clinton. Her reasons are simple. Anything can be precocious in getting Trump even inches closer to the White House, as she said in essence. Warren then suggested directly that a vote for Stein is a vote that brings Mr. Trump closer to the White House.
Also today, Dr. Stein even voiced more apprehensions and warning about Donald Trump. She did so by calling him a neo-fascist, basically. She generally suggested in her interview with Democracy Now, that Trump resonates fascist qualities of leaders of the past. This makes it clear that a vote for Trump is a vote for misfortune and peril in the United States.
Recently, on “Hannity” on Fox News, Trump generalized minorities once again, fabricating a vibe that illegal immigrants have been acutely responsible for deaths and fatalities in the country. One woman came forward, saying this is not an isolated issue. Trump, once again, has me disappointed in him and terrified if he gets elected.

With current news of Hillary Clinton’s nomination as the first woman democratic nominee to make national history on Tuesday night during the Democratic National Convention she’s closer to becoming the next president of the United States.
On Tuesday night during the DNC in Philadelphia, Clinton supporters helped her win her way to victory with help from Senator Bernie Sanders by announcing his endorsement in support.Despite the division of Bernie and Hillary supporters at the convention her ruling support numbers and support from Bernie granted her victory.
During his delegation in which his state of Vermont had decided to go last on the roll call ,Senator Bernie Sanders decided to go in and called on his supporters to name her the party’s official nominee.
Sanders urged supporters by saying”,…I have that Hillary Clinton be selected as the nominee of the Democratic Party for president of the United States.”
Many of Sanders supporters cheered in agreement to his endorsement of Clinton while many reacted in retaliation by walking out on the convention and others marched in protest while chanting “walk out” and “this is what democracy looks like”.Others staged a sit in the convention center.
