Obama just can’t seem to support the President like a true American.
While in Indonesia visiting his hometown of Jakarta Barack Obama gave a speech where without mentioning any names gripped about Trump and the decision to pull out of the Paris Climate agreement that he had unofficially agreed to while he was in office. Obama proceeded to call the new administration an “aggressive” form of nationalism.
Former President Barack Obama took a thinly veiled swipe at President Trump in Indonesia Saturday, sounding the alarm about “an aggressive kind of nationalism” and grumbling about the U.S. exit from the Paris climate agreement.
Obama, in a trip to his childhood home of Jakarta where he lived for four years as a boy, did not mention Trump by name but pushed back against those movements that put the national interest first.
“We start seeing a rise in sectarian politics, we start seeing a rise in an aggressive kind of nationalism, we start seeing both in developed and developing countries an increased resentment about minority groups and the bad treatment of people who don’t look like us or practice the same faith as us,” he said according to the Hill.
