Bill Clinton, Climbing, and Jimmy Carter: The Obamas donate White House swing set to Washington shelter L 17th soulja 4 WASHINGTON — The swing set President Obama installed on the South Lawn for his young daughters eight years ago has a new home. The White House said Friday that the Obamas donated the set to a shelter in southeast Washington. The Obama family plans to visit the Jobs Have Priority Naylor Road Program on Monday and join residents for a service project in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day.The Obamas installed the cedar and North American Redwood swing set in March 2009, shortly after moving to the White House. The set has four swings, including a tire swing, a slide, a fort, a climbing wall and climbing ropes.Daughters Malia and Sasha — who at the time were ages 10 and 7, respectively — are now 18 and 15. Obama offered the swing set to President-elect Donald Trump, who has a 10-year-old son, Barron. But Trump declined the offer, the White House said, and a Trump representative confirmed.The swing set was hauled away from its location just outside the Oval Office last month, the White House said. Most of the families at the Jobs Have Priority shelter are headed by young African-American females, according to the website for the 28-apartment family shelter. The average family has two to three young children and many have at least one family member with a mental, developmental or physical disability.Presidents throughout the years have altered the landscape of the White House grounds to suit their recreational needs, or their children’s.James Buchanan added the first greenhouse in 1857. Theodore Roosevelt followed with a tennis court in 1903. Historical photos show two of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s grandchildren playing on a slide near a jungle gym on the South Lawn, and much later Caroline Kennedy pushing younger brother John F. Kennedy Jr. on a swing set, also on the South Lawn. Gerald Ford added an outdoor swimming pool, and Jimmy Carter’s daughter, Amy, had a treehouse. George H.W. Bush had tree-mounted swings installed for granddaughters Jenna and Barbara, and Bill Clinton, a jogger, installed a running track 17thsoulja BlackIG17th

Jimmy Carter, Martin, and Martin Luther King Jr.: Trump says John Lewis is all "talk, talk, talk." He has been fighting longer than many of us have been alive 80 THRU. THIS LANE "All talk? John Lewis is one of America’s most courageous and forceful leaders – not only for Atlanta but also for the nation and the world. In the 1960s he was frequently arrested and beaten by police officers at protests, including “Bloody Sunday” in Selma, Alabama in 1965. He was an organizer of Martin Luther King Jr’s march on Washington. He ran the Vista program under Jimmy Carter. He served on the Atlanta City Council. He's been reelected to Congress 14 times - leading Congress and the nation in support of gay rights and national health insurance; and against Clinton’s welfare plan, Bush’s Iraq War, and NSA wiretaps without warrants. His activism includes protests against genocide in Darfur (which got him arrested twice outside the Sudan embassy); a sit-in at the Capitol building advocating immigration reform, which got him arrested again; and he led a protest by Democrats demanding action on gun control in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting. John Lewis is the conscience of America. Donald Trump doesn’t have the moral stature to kiss John Lewis’s feet." - Robert Reich. johnlewis civilrights martinlutherking mlkjr blacklivesmatter undocumented immigration HereToStay
