Obama Says More Women Needed in Power, Subs Trump During Speech

Obama Says More Women Needed in Power, Subs Trump During Speech

Barack Obama thinks it's time for more women to take office.

According to Obama, more women should be in leadership roles "because men seem to be having some problems these days", according to AFP.

When questioned about the qualities that are needed for leadership Obama said, "Not to generalise but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly due to their socialisation".

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.

Just days before, the President European addressed 55 world leaders from Arab and other Muslim-majority nations in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. Obama said, pointing to a need for change.

On Friday, the former President lashed out at the current administration, taking a thinly veiled dig at Donald Trump as he addressed a leadership summit in India.

The former U.S. leader, who visited Beijing and New Delhi this week, had stood alongside Hollande and Hidalgo two years ago during a memorial ceremony for the victims of the November 13, 2015, terrorist attacks in the French capital.

The agreement would have left American workers and taxpayers to "absorb the cost in terms of lost jobs, lower wages, shuttered factories, and vastly diminished economic production", he said.

Macron had rolled out the red carpet for Trump in July, hosting him as a guest of honour for Bastille Day celebrations when he sought - unsuccessfully - to change the USA leader's mind on pulling out of the Paris climate change agreement. "What I would say is Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp, all these various platforms are extraordinarily powerful tools, and those tools can be used for good and they tools can be used for ill", he said.
