It’s only been one week since President Donald Trump has taken office, and some of his actions have brought anger, and anxiety on parts of the nation.

One of those people is former President Barack Obama’s daughter Malia who joined a protest at the Dakota Access Pipeline.

She was at the Sundance Film Festival where actress Shailene Woodley addressed seeing her at the protest to Democracy Now.

AMY GOODMAN: Were you surprised to see Malia Obama yesterday at the protest?

SHAILENE WOODLEY: It was amazing to see Malia. I saw her last night when we did the event with Chairman Dave Archambault. And it was incredible to see her there. Also—

AMY GOODMAN: President Obama’s daughter.

SHAILENE WOODLEY: President Obama’s daughter. Also, to witness a human being and a woman coming into her own outside of her family and outside of the attachments that this country has on her, but someone who’s willing to participate in democracy because she chooses to, because she recognizes, regardless of her last name, that if she doesn’t participate in democracy, there will be no world for her future children.

Should be interesting to see what the Obama’s do following their time at the White House.
