While 14-year-old Ahmed Mohammed is adjusting to his newfound, albeit unwanted fame after being blatantly accused of being a domestic terrorist for making a homemade clock, his support is also growing.
The hashtag #IStandWithAhmed has been trending all day and now he’s gotten one of the biggest co-signs a kid could possible attract.
The country’s commander-in-chief.
“Cool clock, Ahmed,” President Barack Obama wrote on his official Twitter account. “Want to bring it to the White House? We should inspire more kids like you to like science. It’s what makes America great.”
Ahmed has since been suspended from school but what cooler way to spend a few days off than to kick it in the Oval Office?
In the meantime, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is crawling all over the situation in Irving, Texas.
