Obama Seemingly Makes Dig At Trump's Twitter Use

Former US President Barack Obama on Saturday called for more women to be put in positions of power "because men seem to be having some problems these days".

"I grant you that at the moment we have a temporary absence of American leadership on the issue", Obama said, to laughter in the audience packed with French CEOs and former ministers.

Mr. Obama didn't limit his criticisms of Mr. Trump-while never mentioning his name-to the area of global warming, but also worked in oblique references to the President's use of social media.

"Not to generalise but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly due to their socialisation", Obama said at an invitation-only event during a visit to Paris.

Obama also used the occasion to hone his post-presidential vision of hope and change as he seeks to build support for the foundation he launched in September.

If Trump hears that Obama just shaded him, it's possible that he will say that Obama's followers are fake.

Mayors from around the world will gather in Chicago Monday as they prepare to sign a first-of-its-kind worldwide agreement after President Donald Trump's Administration chose to walk away from the Paris climate accord.

During his visit on Saturday, he is expected to discuss efforts to uphold the Climate Agreement that was signed in Paris later that year - but which his successor, Donald Trump, has pulled out of.

Despite Trump's unwillingness to participate until the agreement is renegotiated, individual American companies - along with U.S. states and cities - have stepped up their commitment to the deal.

'And the good news is that in the United States, there are states, companies and universities and cities that are continuing to work to make sure that America lives up to the agreements that we made in the Paris accords'.
