That week alone 20 Americans were killed in mass shootings. Gun violence is the leading cause of death for under-24-year-olds in America.

In an official statement in Jakarta (8/7), he denied this and clarified that while it is important for women to have two children in average and ideally one girl, it is not mandatory.
