“I grant you that at the moment we have a temporary absence of American leadership on the issue,” Obama said at an invitation-only event in Paris. Obama did not mention President Donald Trump by name, but he did allude to the administration’s move to opt out of the accord.

The U.S. remains on track to meet the agreement, he said, referring to a state-based coalition designed to fill the void left. Obama met with French President Emanuel Macron earlier in the day during a private conversation the French presidency did not publicize.

Obama did appear to recognize the frustration many Europeans are feeling about the EU’s increasing intrusion into people’s lives.

“I think for example that the European Union needs to recognize that micro-managing every single aspect of life within Europe gets people frustrated,” he said.

“So, there are ways of streamlining and improving the functioning of the European Union, but the European project itself, the Union itself is something that is worth preserving.”

The event was part of a three-country tour to promote the Obama Foundation. Obama said during a stop Friday in India that he cannot have a debate with someone who thinks man-made global warming is a hoax.

“I don’t know what to do with that,” Obama said, apparently referring to Trump, who suggested during the presidential campaign in 2016 that climate change is a hoax created by the Chinese. “If you’re saying it’s a hoax, then there’s no way for us to bridge our differences in a constructive way.”

    Anytime Obama complains about anything Trump does . we can be assured that his Nose is out of Joint.. He is constantly guarding his pitiful legacy.. ask anyone at all especially the Pro Obama-ites what his accomplishes are an they will scratch their heads .. and rub their chins in deep thought Hmmmmm.. they will mutter.. but he did so many great things they will reply, in an apologetic insistence! Other than dropping a Microphone and kissing his two fingers on his right hand and appearing “Cool” Not much else .. other than making everybody hate whites and cops.. I can’t think of a thing else..

      I agree Obama as had his tail stepped on.. You see, Like a stealthy black cat that lurks in the Shadows . doing unspeakable nasties against this current Administration , (like only a creepy Jack would. ) he has his fingers in the pudding to Protect his Goals of change for America , those Changes that he would Never make quite Clear.. Just “Changes” and we were supposed to just swallow that hook line and sinker! His Hope for the changes he Promised are still rolling in.. and they are dangerous for Democracy. as the trains roll in from El Salvador. Caravans full . loaded with the riffraff of every third world Country .. headed to America to help Barrack fulfill his Mission of the annihilation of the America we thought we had.. and BTW… More statues to be pulled down.. so look for it!
