One of Stanford University’s most spoken conservative leaders is the son of Susan Rice – the national security adviser under Obama who drew controversy over her comments in the aftermath of the Benghazi attacks.
The son who supports President Trump and the mother who is a prominent liberal still enjoy a healthy relationship, John David Rice-Cameron explains.
“My mother and I have a great relationship, and my mother believes strongly in the free and respectful exchange of ideas,” Rice-Cameron reportedly said. “We disagree on most of the standard Republican/Democrat disagreements. However, we agree that America is the greatest nation the world has ever seen, and thus, we believe that America has an important role to play as a force for liberty and justice on the world stage.”

The sophomore Rice-Cameron is president of the College Republicans on campus and the activism executive for the California College Republicans.
Rice-Cameron revealed that his parents, both Democrats unintentionally directed him to conservatism by listening to Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin.
“I salute John David Rice-Cameron; a young man committed to liberty,” Levin wrote on social media, sharing a story from The College Fix.
Rice-Cameron replied with a simple thanks and suggested that soon enough, he will call into the show.
“You have been the single greatest political inspiration for me,” he wrote. “Thank you very much. I will try to call into the radio show sometime soon.”
“This worldview and these principles compel me to promote conservative ideas at Stanford, and beyond,” Rice added. “I’m driven by a fundamental sense of urgency over the fact that Americans are slowly losing their liberty, and I believe that liberty is being valued less and less. I want to turn the tide, and college campuses are crucial to doing so.”
