It won’t make a difference

Re: Gabbard’s strong support in Samoa 

That’s an interesting conclusion to assume because Gabbard was born in American Samoa that this would be a good thing for Samoa. 

Obama’s father was born in Kenya, his relatives still lived there, but what did Obama do for Kenya or any country in Africa.

Last I looked the US companies are still exploiting countries in Africa, including Kenya, for resources. I don’t expect if Gabbard wins that it will have any impact on Samoa what so ever. 

She could do things for Samoa now, as could the Rock, but they don’t, so why would this be any different if they became president of the U.S. 

They are Americans with some Samoan ancestry, not Samoans with some American ancestry.
