Obama was responding to a question about leadership qualities for the future, at the event organized by a network of communications professionals known as "Les Napoleons".

Hidalgo said the C40, an global network of mayors that she heads, would build ties with the Obama Foundation focusing on climate change. Further, he did not gear the speech around politics, for he was speaking to a room mostly filled with French CEOs, but that's how some are choosing to read his words. Obama then spoke on the mindfulness that should be exercised when using Twitter and all social media.

The decision was met with strong criticism domestically and from other world leaders, as it partially undid several years of arduous negotiations. That's how you know the thought is finished, ' " Obama said.

Trump has threatened several times to withdraw from the Paris accord saying it is crippling USA business.

Former President Barack Obama lamented the lack of US leadership in the fight against climate change during a visit to Paris on Saturday, in a veiled rebuke of his Republican successor's decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord.

He also warned Brussels against overreach, saying "the European Union needs to recognize that micromanaging every single aspect of life within Europe gets people frustrated".

Macron and Trump are also at odds on the issue of the Iranian nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration, which the French leader wants to save.

The former United States leader, who visited Beijing and New Delhi this week, had stood alongside Hollande and Hidalgo two years ago during a memorial ceremony for the victims of the November 13, 2015, terrorist attacks in the French capital.
