“Couldn't Agree More!”: President Obama Responds to 5-Year-Old Girl's Message on Twitter

A small girl with a big message caught the president's attention on Twitter.

Five-year-old Yasmeen from Virginia wrote a letter to President Obama asking that he "stop war for our world," adding that countries should have a meeting instead.

She also asked the president to "give a speech to tell everyone they can marry who they want."

Her aunt, Dr. Fahmida Zaman, a psychologist in San Francisco, tweeted a picture of the letter to the president — and the commander in chief responded.

He wrote: "Tell your niece I really like her letter. Couldn't agree more!" he wrote. It was only Obama's sixth tweet since getting his own account.

"The fact that he responded to a letter that a 5-year-old wrote, to be able to share with her that her words got to the president was pretty remarkable," Zaman said.

The message has been retweeted more than 3,000 times.
