Offbeat | Former President Barack Obama: 'Think before you tweet'

The former President said as much during a meeting with "Les Napoleons" in Paris, and many on social media are sounding off.

When former President Barack Obama spoke to a leadership forum in India's capital last week, he never once used the words "Donald Trump" and was careful to avoid any direct reference to his successor in the White House.

Obama also used to his Paris speech to call for more women in positions of power, saying that "men seem to be having some problems these days", in an apparent reference to the sexual assault and harassment scandals now dominating the US.

"Not to generalize, but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly due to their socialization", he went on.

Mr. Obama praised the efforts of individual US states and cities aimed at reducing carbon emissions, and said that America is still on track to meet climate goals set in past agreements. Though the USA may be the only country that opposes the accord, Obama assured the audience that plenty of measures are being taken by state and local governments, as well as corporations, to combat the issue.

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 U.S. leader's mind on pulling out of the Paris climate change agreement.

While in France, Obama also met with French President Emanuel Macron to discuss climate change and the European Union, among other topics.
