Barack Obama Has More Twitter Followers Than Trump And He Knows It

Obama laments lack of US climate leadership in Paris

The 44th President, who helped pen the Paris Climate Agreement which he signed in 2015, said there has been "a pause in American leadership" on the issue.

While in France over the weekend, former President Barack Obama just couldn't help but take a verbal shot at his successor.

Former President Obama called for more women to be elected to office "because men seem to be having some problems these days, "French news agency AFP reported".

"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.

2 December 2017:Obama was due to have lunch with Macron at the Elysée Palace - in a "private capacity", the French presidency said - before addressing a network of communications professionals known as the Napoleons.

Some think Former President Barack Obama subtly made a jab at President Trump's excessive use of Twitter.

As the panel continued, Obama made sure to get in another thinly-veiled critique of a man in power-Donald Trump. The Climate Accord, Trump stated, "is simply the latest example of Washington entering into an agreement that disadvantages the United States to the exclusive benefit of other countries".

He said he sees people getting in trouble for their tweets, and says they should follow the old advice of thinking before you speak: "Think before you tweet", Obama said.

Obama's visit comes as Macron pursues a tricky diplomatic strategy with Trump, whom he hosted as the guest of honour at the Bastille Day celebrations this year in an unsuccessful bid to change his mind on climate.

"From closing coal plants, to investing in electric vehicles and public transportation, to reducing electricity usage in our buildings, to updating streetlights across the city, Chicago is showcasing to the world the impact that cities can have on climate change for their residents and for people around the world", Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement.
