«I will speak on things that I’m comfortable with, and I will do things I believe are helpful for my country» he said.
«I love my country despite what President Trump said yesterday. I work really hard on a lot of things off the floor. And one of those things is I don’t want people to feel what my family felt when my father was killed. That’s a passionate subject for me. This is part of my life».
«We’re fortunate in this country to have free speech and I exercise that. But part of having free speech is also electing not to speak if you don’t feel comfortable».
In the article of Ann Killion we read that: «This week wasn’t the first time that Trump belittled a Kerr. In a 1990 Playboy interview, Trump made a callous reference to Malcolm Kerr’s murder, insinuating that Kerr was asking for trouble by teaching in Beirut».
«I feel comfortable talking about gun safety, it’s a cause near and dear to my heart and crucial for our future as a country» Kerr said. «I’m going to comment on that. That’s my right. It’s why I love being an American. I’m able to channel my energy and my resources to where I feel comfortable. And there are places where I don’t feel so comfortable».
