Shadow President? Obama Meets With South Korean President To Discuss Trump

Follow on FacebookFollow on Twitter

Former President Barack Obama seems to be feeling nostalgic for his old job, meeting with South Korean President Moon Jae-in Monday for 40 minutes.

The Korea Herald reported that Moon spoke about his recent meetings with President Trump in Washington and asked Obama for his advice on how to improve that relationship.

The meeting came after Obama spoke at the Asian Leadership Conference in Indonesia. There he attacked Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate change accord.

“In Paris, we came together around the most ambitious agreement in history about climate change, an agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership can still give our children a fighting chance,” Obama said.

The former president had said before leaving office that he appreciated his predecessor George W. Bush’s silence during his tenure, but also contended that he’s “still a citizen and that carries with it duties and obligations.”

This citizen status has led to him to have an active post-presidential political life.

He appealed to members of Congress in May to have the “courage” to save Obamacare, and just a few weeks into President Trump’s tenure Obama put out a statement through his spokesman attacking Trump’s so-called “travel ban.”

President Trump and Obama have had a strained relationship. Trump has accused Obama of both spying on him and obstruction of justice.

    Maybe President Trump needs to invite President Moon Jae-in’s political opponent to the WH to ask for his advice on how to improve that relationship.

  • clarioncaller

    Moonie is in power because his predecessor got busted for corruption. I don’t think President Trump wants any advice from her.

  • Scattergood Baines

    Perfect. It would make as much sense, then.

    Obama has always been a trouble-maker. He’s a brat/punk throwing a 24/7 temper tantrum.
