    Former President Barack Obama will meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in an upcoming trip abroad. Obama will visit China and India before making a stop in Paris, according to a spokesperson for the former president. Obama will speak at various summits in the three countries he visits. The Times of India last week reported that Obama would be in India’s capital city of New Delhi on Dec. 1 for an Obama Foundation event, which the spokesperson confirmed in a statement.
  • Trump’s blunt style throws foreign leaders into a tizzy—and has them rushing to meet with him

    In other words, it's working perfectly One of the biggest mistakes of the political establishment - one they show no sign of grasping - is that when they constantly complain about how Trump is violating all the norms of politics, the presidency and international relations, they totally miss that this is exactly what the people who voted for him wanted him to do. And they totally miss that he is doing it intentionally and with purpose.

    He is upsetting the establishment's apple cart, and positioning the United States to divorce globalist conditioning, and reestablish our sovereignty I am thoroughly enjoying watching Trump make the establishment, the media, and the Never Trump jerks squirm. They don’t understand him, and are trying to criticize his every move, and in the end Trump will likely make them all look like chumps. While the opponents of Donald Trump fail to understand his moves, and are all over the place trying to make him look bad, the truth is to understand Donald Trump’s “unorthodox” methods is as simple as turning a...

    It’s being called the “Panama Papers” — a trove of 11.5 million leaked internal documents from the Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, showing how hundreds of thousands of people with money to hide used anonymous shell corporations across the world. Fusion’s investigative unit was one of the more than 100 media organizations that dove into the files — and found drug dealers, arms traders, human traffickers, fraudsters. We also found no shortage of politicians or their family members. Here is a listing of current and former world leaders connected to the files.

  • What do the world's leaders really think of Obama?

    Inside the minds of the world’s leaders; friendly, enemy and neutral… Putin – What this guy’s problem? He reminds me of an old cleaning lady waiting for a bus in Leningrad. All he needs is a scarf over his head. I’ve tried to get through to Obamsky, but he’s as cold as a Siberian lake; seems like nothing can break the ice with him. I’ve tried snow mobile racing, Rugby and walking on hot coals to try and bond with him, but nothing works. We did lift weights for a few minutes. He conked out after lifting a couple five...
  • Fortune Names Taylor Swift—Not Obama—One of World’s Greatest Leaders

    Fox News Insider ^ | Mar 27, 2015 1:12 pm
    Should President Barack Obama just “shake it off?” Taylor Swift ranked sixth on Fortune Magazine’s second annual list of the world’s 50 greatest leaders—people who are “transforming business, government, philanthropy, and so much more.” But the president was omitted entirely from the list. Fortune Editor Alan Murray explained why: “I voted for Barack Obama in 2008 largely because of his call to unite blue states and red states behind a politics of hope. But it hasn’t happened. At home our politics are as divided—and our federal government is as dysfunctional—as they were when he took office.” …

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is scheduled to speak to Congress at 11:00 a.m., but it appears that President Obama will not be watching most of the speech. The White House Press Office released an update to his daily schedule this morning, announcing a video conference call with world leaders for 11:30 a.m. in the situation room, likely as Netanyahu is finishing his speech. According to the White House, the conference will include British Prime Minister David Cameron, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, and European Commission President Donald Tusk. The last minute...

    World leaders and especially Western ones care--really care--about the horror of Islamist terrorism, even while still telling the great unwashed that only Islamaphobes identify Islamist terrorism as Islamist terrorism ‘World leaders’ who responded like sharks to chum at the “Je suis Charlie” mass rally in Paris on Sunday soon returned to their offices to carry on with what they always do: forging the same lax immigration policies that allow the barbarians to get in through the gates and patently ignoring the inevitability of the next Islamic terrorist attack. But before leaving Paris they had firmly planted in the minds of...

    The Queen warned last night that focusing too much attention on the Ebola outbreak could lead to an upsurge in other deadly diseases such as malaria. At an event alongside world leaders in the science of infectious diseases yesterday, she asked ‘piercing’ questions about how the disease ought to be controlled. And the monarch said she worried that Ebola, which has claimed 5,000 lives already, risked overshadowing the risk from other deadlier diseases like malaria, which kills the same number every week.

    The Washington Times ^ | September 29, 2014 | Kim R. Holmes - Former Asst. SOS
    President Obama insulted many Americans last week when he raised events in Ferguson, Missouri, during his United Nations speech. They chafed at the implied moral equivalence of a shooting still in legal dispute with the many lethal foreign threats besieging the world. While such rhetoric is divisive at home, there is another problem. The president does not seem to understand that most of the world is completely unmoved by such apologies. Most of the world does not see an earnest moralist struggling with America’s complicated past or a humble man admitting his own foibles. Instead, they see a weak leader...

    This year the votes for the World’s Most Powerful — an annual look at the heads of state, financiers, philanthropists and entrepreneurs who truly rule the world — went with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He climbs one spot ahead of U.S. President Barack Obama, who held title in 2012. He’s Not No. 1: This is the first year that Putin carries the crown. Obama has been on the top of the list for every year with the exception of 2010, when Hu Jintao, the former political and military leader of China, was No. 1.

    The National Security Agency monitored the phone conversations of 35 world leaders after being given the numbers by an official in another US government department, according to a classified document provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden. The confidential memo reveals that the NSA encourages senior officials in its "customer" departments, such the White House, State and the Pentagon, to share their "Rolodexes" so the agency can add the phone numbers of leading foreign politicians to their surveillance systems. The document notes that one unnamed US official handed over 200 numbers, including those of the 35 world leaders, none of whom is...

    The reason why President Obama is not meeting with any foreign leaders during this week's United Nations General Assembly in New York is, as one aide to the president explained, because "If he met with one leader, he would have to meet with 10." The reasoning was explained that way to the New York Times. "Mr. Obama was scheduled to attend a reception for world leaders at the United Nations on Monday night. But a campaign adviser acknowledged privately that in this election year, campaigning trumped meetings with world leaders. 'Look, if he met with one leader, he would have...

    U.S. President Barack Obama has made no plans to meet privately with any of the world leaders gathering in New York next week for the UN’s General Assembly. With six weeks until the American elections, Obama is instead using his time to reach voters by going on the talk show “The View,” and leaving his schedule open to return to campaigning in the nation’s swing states thus putting the burden on Secratery of State Hilary Clinton to meet with the various ...

    World leaders from Washington to Islamabad are increasingly engaged in a frantic attempt to contain the political damage of the WikiLeaks disclosures. The fact that many of the leaked cables expose U.S. foreign policy in a seemingly negative and contradictory light -- officials saying one thing in public and doing something entirely different in private -- has embarrassed an administration that has made multilateralism a key component of its grand strategy. But what is less clear, particularly in media coverage of the leaks, is what the new WikiLeaks documents say about the policies and behavior of foreign governments. Indeed, just...
