RWC News Coincidence? Obama Set To Visit Merkel… At The Same Time As President Trump’s Visit

Obama decides to leave the woods and reenter politics in late May when he will meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel to discuss democracy on a global scale.

Former President Barack Obama has confirmed that he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet and talk democracy in Berlin. The meeting is set for late May, which is the same time that President Trump is set to meet NATO allies in Brussels. Obama does not seem to be following the precedent of George W. Bush, which was staying out of politics so as not to complicate matters for the current president. Instead, he is giving an indication of what kind of post-presidency he is going to make.

The event is called “Being Involved in Democracy: Taking on Responsibility Locally and Globally”. The event is sponsored by German Protestant Kirchentag and the Obama Foundation. The name of the event is representative of Barack Obama, who was once a community organizer and is currently a globalist.

This summer Europe will be celebrating 500-year-anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Bishop Heinrich Bedford-Strohm, the chair of the Evangelical Church in Germany, stated, “Anyone who is pious also has to be politically minded.” The bishop invited Mr. Obama last year, and the Obama Foundation then decided to co-sponsor the event.

Merkel and Trump had an icy meeting in the Oval Office.

Last month Angela Merkel visited the White House and met a stony President Donald Trump. The two world leaders were visibly uncomfortable with one another. Trump, sitting on the edge of his chair, looking as if he just wanted to walk out of the meeting, snubbed Merkel when she went to shake his hand. From his campaign rhetoric, one can assume that is no fan of Angela Merkel. Trump is quoted as saying, “What Merkel did to Germany is a shame, it’s a sad, sad shame what’s happening to Germany.” This is with respect to Germany’s asylum policy. Trump continued, “I don’t know what happened to her, I don’t know what her thinking was, but I don’t think they are going to recover from it very easily if at all.”

Some of Trump’s most vocal supporters see the man as saving Western Civilization. They see Merkel as ceding Western Civilization by prioritizing importation of migrants and refugees who don’t share its values, and, in some cases, are openly hostile to its values and traditions. The key distinction can be summed up by observing that Trump ran as a nationalist and Merkel is a globalist. This was a marked difference from the Merkel-Obama relationship, which was congenial, evidenced by the fact that Obama is reentering the world stage in Berlin.

Barack Obama has decided to stay in Washington D.C. This had some of the right concocting ideas that Obama was going to set up a shadow government. But soon after leaving office, Barack Obama took an unprecedented vacation. He went to Tahiti, French Polynesia, to write his memoirs and is still there. It is unclear when he will return to the United States. What is certain, is that Obama is going to Berlin to meet with Angela Merkel. The former leader was bashed for going on what critics called an apology tour to kick off his presidency. Starting his post-presidency outside the United States and then reentering the world stage in Berlin indicates Obama may be feeling spurned by Americans. He may rightly feel this way considering the history between him and Trump.


Trump infamously questioned Barack Obama’s citizenship. A confluence of factors led Trump to openly challenge Obama and promise that he was going to find out the truth of the matter. As Trump continued, in 2011, to push this idea, Barack Obama brought him to the White House Correspondents Dinner and publicly lambasted the billionaire real estate developer. History may track back to this as the moment that Uncle Sam gave his metaphysical patriotic favor to Donald Trump.

There was also an infamous social media exchange. tweeted:

Then President Obama’s response came in the form of a sketch on Jimmy Kimmel, in which he infamously responded, “At least I will go down as a president.” Obama mugged at the camera and dropped-the-iPhone to the delight of the Kimmel audience.

Trump repeatedly states that Obamacare is a mess, and has said that he inherited a mess, generally, from Obama. After attempting to reconcile around the inauguration and the peaceful transition of power, the relations of the two presidents has returned to being sour. In a tweet, called Obama “sick” and claimed that the former president had Trump Tower ‘”wiretapped”’. It does not take a leap to imagine that Barack Obama resents and perhaps even loathes Donald Trump.


Obama attending a meeting with Merkel about democracy is a direct counter signal to Trump. Their respective alignments with Merkel’s policies are an indication of how far apart these two presidents are ideologically. Trump is the anti-Merkel and the anti-Obama. The former president isn’t just going to peacefully cede the international scene to a bitter enemy.

Barack Obama is showing the United States and the world community his true colors. He is a globalist. He believes in the unchecked strength of the executive office. Obama has a post-colonial perspective, and this theoretical framework is not only critical but disdainful of the West. One may wonder how the growing number of Muslims and the increasing secularization of Germany would strike those Protestant Reformers that are being celebrated in Europe this summer.
