Barack Obama apologizes for the lack of American leadership.

On Thursday, Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Accord, in which nations across the globe pledged to combat global warming with a low-carbon future.

Despite a worldwide effort to urge Trump to remain a part of the agreement — including pressure from 195 nations, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and even Ivanka Trump — the President ultimately sided with the conservatives who said the agreement will not Make America Great Again.

Well, since the sitting POTUS thinks science is as pointless as consent, Trump's predecessor, the man who was largely responsible for the global initiative, had no choice but to comment on the subject.

And this time, Obama didn't hold back!

Soon after Trump's decision was announced, he released a statement saying he was confident "states, cities, and businesses will step up" to lead the way for our country "in the absence of American leadership." Mic drop!

The former POTUS explained the nations who remained in the agreement would "reap the benefits in jobs and industries created" by America's private innovation and investment in clean energy.

Basically, he's saying the U.S. led the pack of this global effort over a year ago, but now Trump will prevent the country from seeing any of its economic benefits. Wonderful.
