Barak Obama is like a bad haircut, only time will make it go away.
Traditionally when handing over the presidential reins the former president will show some form of support, if not for the new president at least for the future of the country. Obama has decided to throw that out the window and attack Trump in a global level whenever possible. Recently Trump had a conversation with South Korea regarding relations with North Korea, so naturally Obama showed up a few days later and had the same conversation in order to undermine Trump.
Former President Barack Obama is traveling abroad with his wife and daughters, but the family isn’t exactly vacationing.
On Monday, Obama spoke at the Asian Leadership Conference in Seoul and met with President Moon Jae-in — just days after the leader met with President Donald Trump at the White House.
“President Moon Jae-in renewed his resolve to pursue sanctions and dialogue to tackle North Korea’s nuclear program during a meeting with former U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday, saying now is the ‘last chance’ for the regime to return to the negotiating table,” the Korea Herald reported.
“During the 40-minute talk, Moon shared the results of his recent summit with his incumbent U.S. counterpart Donald Trump, asking for Obama’s advice on ways to advance the relationship,” the Korea Herald reported.
“Democracy is hard,” Obama said. “Progress does not move in a straight line. Its gains are often fragile.”
“But the future does not favor the strongman,” Obama said. “I believe deeply that the liberal international order; order based not just on military power or national affiliations, but on principles — the rule of law, human rights and individual freedoms — is the only choice.”
