It would appear that former President Barack Obama is just as upset at Donald Trump's presidency as Hillary Clinton is.

Obama isn't fading into the green pastures of obscurity like his predecessors. Instead, he's still hammering his own political agenda that he worked for eight years to establish. Obama is planning to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a trip already planned.

The Times of India confirmed Obama's visit, which is an event for his Obama Foundation. The trip follows closely on the heels of Trump's tour of Asia, which was widely regarded as a success for American foreign policy. Ivanka Trump is already in India meeting with President Modi for a global entrepreneurship summit.

Ivanka tweeted about the event,

Obama finally broke his silence on Trump's presidency when Trump rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, something that was near and dear to Obama's heart.

Obama will also be visiting France on his international trip. It'll be interesting to see how Obama is received when he's not the president. Americans and Obama himself like to think that he restored American honor abroad, but the tape reels would say otherwise.

Here is Obama speaking at a nuclear summit in the Netherlands. When he was done, literally one person clapped for him in the back.

It would appear that Obama is attempting to undermine Trump, but it's looking like a difficult task to accomplish.
