For me, Obama has been a disaster as a US president, long on words and short on action, particularly in foreign policy.

Despite my bias against Obama, I agree with him about ‘populist strongmen’.

With the prospect Trump of having his fingers on the nuke buttons, the outlook is truly scary.

Thoughts?
