Obama says Paris climate agreement still has a chance

Posted June 08, 2017

This time, the photos surfaced after the Canadian prime minister and former American president were seen having dinner and drinks together at Montreal's Liverpool House restaurant on June 6.

He wrote that they were discussing how to "get young leaders to take action in their communities", but we like to imagine they were actually swapping fashion tips and advice on how to deal with Donald Trump. Thanks @BarackObama for your visit & insights tonight in my hometown'. While Morin was not on hand at the dinner, for which the rest of the restaurant was completely closed off, McMillan made sure to document the moment with the two world leaders.

Obama's speech marked his first appearance in Canada since leaving the White House.

The former US president made the remarks in a speech to the Montreal Chamber of Commerce and got a round of applause from the business crowd for mentioning the Paris accord.

The rock star treatment they got outside the restaurant proves it.

The pair met soon after the top USA diplomat in China resigned, allegedly in protest of Trump's Paris decision. California has been on the forefront in improving green energy sources.

During his speech, which by the way wasn't attended by Justin Trudeau for some reason, Barack Obama lambasted the Trump administration's decision to pull out of the Paris accord, which Obama has spent years advocating for.

After waving to the excited group outside, Obama and Trudeau shared a bro hug before the former president entered an SUV and went on his way, perhaps to give Biden a phone call and chat about ice cream. "An agreement that even with the temporary absence of American leadership will still give our children a fighting chance", he added.

"We're also bound by the institutions that we built to keep the peace", Obama said, referring to the UN, NATO and NAFTA.

The former president also appeared to hint towards Trump while he spoke about the current age of instant information and its advantages and disadvantages.

Social media users have obsessed over Obama's friendships, sparking a series of memes about a bromance with his vice-president Joe Biden and recently, Prince Harry.
