Elmo: Refugee kids are just like us

“They like to play and learn just like Elmo and all his friends at Sesame street” he said during a Facebook Live interview with CNN on Monday.

The 3 1/2-year-old Sesame street character visited a refugee camp in Jordan back in February, and described the trip as “really wonderful because Elmo got to meet a lot of new friends.”

“Elmo thinks it’s important to know that everybody is the same deep down and that’s very important.”
