In the article Obama Knocks Trump at Rutgers: ‘Ignorance is not a virtue’ by Allie Malloy is discussed that while giving a commencement speak at Rutgers University President Barack Obama told “graduates to tout their knowledge, not brag about their ignorance”. According to the article, this was a reference to the “republican presidential candidate Donald Trump” who throughout his presidential campaign has to discuss his views but “not know what [he’s] talking about”. Furthermore, it discusses that President Obama told people graduating at the university that they should “stand up to those who say that America was better in the past and dismissed the idea of building walls”. Moreover, it discusses that the president when on to challenging Trumps’ idea that “Muslims should be banned from the United States”. I think that it is good to hear President Obama speaking out against Donald Trumps ignorant comments or ideas that he wants to encourage people to believe and agree with him. Moreover, I think that if people are agreeing with Donald Trump’s ignorant ideas then there is a problem with society. Listening to an ignorant person’s ideas just makes the other person ignorant as well instead of providing them with actual knowledge.
