Just one day after meeting the president, teen clock-builder Ahmed Mohamed and his family announced they are leaving America in favor of Qatar.
Tuesday, his family released a statement saying, "We would like to announce that we have accepted a kind offer from Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF) for Ahmed to join the prestigious QF Young Innovators Program." (Video via PBS NewsHour)
Ahmed was thrust into the national spotlight after he was arrested when his teacher mistook his homemade clock for a bomb.
