  • Obama to meet French presidents, past and present, on Paris trip

During an event organized by the French networking organization Les Napoleons, Obama pointed out that there should be "more focus on putting women in power because men seem to be having some problems these days".

At the event, which was arranged by a network of communications professionals known as the Napoleons, Obama is quoted by AFP as saying: "Not to generalise but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly due to their socialisation".

The more than 50 mayors and global climate leaders will converge on the city for the North American Climate Summit, part of a commitment to addressing climate change on the local level.

Obama would not be drawn into other questions about the U.S. administration at the appearance where he called "destructive populism" a threat to modern democracy.

"If we can adapt to change we can make extraordinary progress".

Obama's wife Michelle recently took what was seen as a subtle swipe at Trump, asking the audience at an event to spellcheck and not tweet everything that comes into their mind.

"Going forward, we need to modernise our economies in a way that is inclusive", he said.

It has been near a year since former President Obama was at the helm of the United States government and leading from behind.

Macron, who received Obama's public support during his campaign for the presidency, slammed Trump's decision to ditch the climate accord last June, but has since tried to maintain cordial relations with the billionaire.

Earlier Saturday, Obama discussed climate issues with Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo.
