Valerie Jarrett: President Obama Viewing Ferguson Unrest from 'Perspective of a Parent'

While vacationing at Martha’s Vineyard, President Obama, Eric Holder, and Valerie Jarrett have been monitoring the continuing uproar in Ferguson, Missouri after the shooting death of Michael Brown at the hands of local police.

But as Obama returned to the White House on Sunday, Jarrett assured members of the media that he will stay personally engaged with the situation. 

Obama’s priority is to keep the citizens of Ferguson safe, Jarrett explained, calling it “paramount” on the president’s mind

According to the New York Times, Jarrett has “talked daily” with Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon as well as local officials and leaders from national civil rights organizations.

Obama is expected to hold a briefing at the White House with Attorney General Eric Holder after returning to Washington, D.C. for two days before heading back to his vacation.
