President Obama References Donald Trump in Rutgers University Commencement Speech (Video)

President Obama is awarded an honorary degree while on stage to give the commencement speech at Rutgers University on Sunday (May 15) in Piscataway, N.J.

The 54-year-old Commander-in-Chief covered a lot of topics in his speech, including an indirect reference to Donald Trump‘s desire to build a wall around the U.S. borders.

“The world is more interconnected than ever before, and it’s becoming more connected every day. Building walls won’t change that,” Obama said. “Isolating or disparaging Muslims, suggesting they should be treated when they come to this country, that is not just a betrayal of our values -– that’s not just a betrayal of who we are –- we alienate the very communities at home or abroad who are our most important partners in the fight against violent extremism.”
