Posted on 12/01/2017 11:52:53 PM PST by Texas Fossil
Former US President Barack Obama is set to visit Chinese Leader Xi Jinping this Tuesday while on a five-day trip to China, India and France.
A statement from Washington's spokeswoman has told CNN that former President Barack Obama is set to meet with his former counterparts during his trip, including Chinese President Xi Jinping.
Obama, who will be arriving in Shanghai to deliver remarks at the Global Alliance of SMEs Summit, will meet with Xi for the first time since September 2016, when both leaders ratified the Paris climate agreement in their respective countries.
Just recently, current US President Donald Trump, who have just visited China on an official trip this month, announced in June his decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris accord.
For the time being, the current administration has foreshadowed the relationship between Xi and Trump, with the President claiming in a statement that the trip in October have blossomed into a good relationship with him and Xi quoting that "the best relationship of any President-President."
"As President, Obama forged a close and cooperative partnership with President Xi on issues ranging from growing the global economy to combating climate change, and he looks forward to catching up with his former counterpart," Obama spokeswoman Katie Hill said.
Meanwhile, in New Delhi, Obama will participate in an Obama Foundation Town Hall with 280 young leaders from around India and speak at the HT Media Leadership Summit.
The former US President will also meet with the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, with whom he shared a warm friendship with while in office.
To add to that, the trip to Paris would be where Obama will deliver remarks at an introductory session of the Les Napoleons Summit before departing.

Does this violate the Logan Act?
Some think so.

I wonder if they’ll make him crawl out of the belly of his plane again.
They should make him crawl out of a tunnel.
The MSM wants to make us think he has Xi’s ear. Really?
Would serve him right. What does it take to remove him? Headshake.
This is not a normal MSM news source. But I get your point.
First saw this issue from the Twitter link I referenced in my opening comment. Have not seen this in MSM news.
There are some people who think that if they squint their eyes real tight Barack Obama will become president again.
From July 9 2017:
What ex POTUS hires a spokesperson?
Tennessee native Hill hired as new Obama spokeswoman
But our rulers in the one and only Branch of government don’t want to bother their colleague Obama. He’s one of their own.
Extraordinary Popular Dellusions and the Madness of Crowds?
Obama has always felt he was “above the law”.
He is one of the privileged class of ComDems.
He should make a statement, like shoplifting a pair of plastic sunglasses and brag how he didn’t regret stealing ‘em, because it’s his culture. just sayin,...I’d like to see the left follow through with their convictions and see what happens.
There is a war going on in DC that encompasses the world and we have only hints about what is truly happening.
Yes, Globalist play ground in DC.
Where is the transcript of Obama’s conversations. We are supposedly listening to everyone. Or are we just listening to the Trump Team.
If it even lands safely...”Cue the robotic flock of Canada geese!”
he’s free now to bow all the way down low.
