Former President Barack Obama seems to be aching for his former job, encountering the President of South Korea Moon Jae-in on Monday for 40 minutes.
According to the Korean Herald, Moon discussed his recent encounter with the U.S. president in D.C. and asked Obama for his counsel on how to amend the bilateral relationship.
This followed after Obama talked at the Asian Leadership Conference and the Fourth Congress of Indonesian Diaspora in Jakarta. There he criticized President Trump’s decision to exit the Paris climate change agreement
“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,” said Obama during his visit to Indonesia.
This citizen status has led to him to have an active post-presidential political life.
Barack Obama has previously said, prior to leaving office, that he respected his predecessor George W. Bush’s silence during his time in office, but also asserted that he was “still a citizen and that carries with it duties and obligations.”
In May, the former president called on Congress members to have the “courage” to hang on to the Affordable Care Act and several weeks after Trump was sworn in, Obama issued a statement via his spokesperson rebuking President Trump’s travel ban.
Throughout the past months, the relationship between Obama and Trump has been a hostile one. Judging by this strained relationship, things will not end well for one of them, hopefully, it Obama will be the one who pays the damage.
