Robert Zimmerman: Obama's Statement Was "Sincere"

George Zimmerman's brother Robert Zimmerman spoke to FOX News shortly after President Obama's surprise appearance in which he spoke about Trayvon Martin and the verdict in the Zimmerman trial.

"I think the president took his time with his remarks, and it was about time they heard from him. I know a lot of people were expecting to hear from the president, and I'm glad he spoke up today," Zimmerman told FOX News.

"You know, I think the president was speaking off the cuff, and I think he was very sincere in his remarks," Zimmerman also said.

"I think that sometimes when we get bogged down in the politics of it all, we forget the missing link is sometimes a person who a young person can relate to or feel encouraged by. I think no matter what any child's race is, ... it should be beyond politics to stand united in the sense that we can organize ourselves to better address the needs of children," he said.
