This man will not quit. We are “going to learn from your country”? Huh? Two billion bucks because you are sooo nice to be around? Oh yeh, lets exchange all of your terrorists while we are at it. Hard to read this sorry stuff- and we have not had an outrage yet?
President Obama today kicked off a two-day Entrepreneurship Summit in Washington, DC.
“We know that over the years, despite all we have in common, the United States and Muslim communities around the world too often fell victim to mutual mistrust,” Obama said from the Ronald Reagan building this evening, “That is why I went to Cairo nearly one year ago and called for a new beginning between the United States and Muslim communities—a new beginning based on mutual interest and mutual respect. I knew that this vision would not be fulfilled in a single year, or even several. But I knew we had to begin and that all of us have responsibilities to fulfill.”
The president announced a series of new partnerships and initiatives with this goal in mind, including new exchange programs that will bring Muslim-majority countries and the United States together.
“We will bring business and social entrepreneurs from Muslim-majority countries to the United States and send their American counterparts to learn from your countries. Women in technology fields will have the opportunity to come to the United States for internships and professional development. And since innovation is central to entrepreneurship, we’re creating new exchanges for science teachers.”
The president touted $2 billion in private capital from the Global Technology and Innovation Fund he first announced in that same speech last June in Cairo to, “unlock new opportunities for people across our countries in sectors like telecommunications, healthcare, education and infrastructure.
