While visiting a camp for Syrian refugees in Jordan
Humanitarian aid is not a long-term solution. No one wants to get off aid more than a Syrian family. A viable political settlement is the only way to create the conditions for Syrians to be able to return to their homes, to end the human suffering and the strain on host countries.
At a BBC event in London, talking about Trump’s stance on Muslims
To me, America is built on people from around the world coming together for freedoms, especially freedom of religion. So it's hard to hear this is coming from someone who is pressing to be an American president.

Make sure your name is on the list so you can vote on Election Day.
In an interview with People, talking about her conversation with Lebanon refugee children
So many refugees are children. I’ve often heard them say that the most painful thing is not that they have lost their homes—it is that they have lost their friends.
In an interview with CNN
Of course it would be wonderful to see her run. I think it is certainly time but I don’t think that is a reason to vote for somebody either. So I will — but of course I would love to see it at some point.
In an interview with Parade about her religious beliefs
My mother had a beautiful faith. She loved Jesus. She was Catholic and had a warm memory of growing up in her faith. She loved to go to church. She also knew that there were certain things in the Church that were too extreme for modern life. She didn’t approve of everything the Church was preaching but, instead of going against the Church, she just went with Jesus. I saw her spirituality as beautiful. If we didn’t go to church on Sunday, she’d say, ‘God would want me to spend time with my children, and laugh with my children. That’s what I believe God would want.’ Mother was right and we’d have a wonderful, fun day. [...] I respect all religions. [...] I don’t respect is when people use religion to attack others. I’ve met people across the world, in the middle of nowhere, who are just trying to survive and all they have is religion. In some way it helps them, and I wouldn’t take it away from them. There are also people who use it to hate and kill. I don’t consider them religious people. [...] We have a bookshelf in the house that has the Bible, the Torah, the Koran, everything. We will take our children to church, temple, Buddhist ceremonies, Mosques, teaching them about all faiths. Whatever religion they choose, the choice will be theirs.
