Trump Has Been Far More Diplomatic Than Obama

Published

on

President Donald Trump is outworking former President Barack Obama big time.

And in doing so, Trump has outdone Obama in many aspects — one of which is “diplomacy,” which Democrats have said the commander in chief was “lacking.”

In their first six months as president, Trump had around 50 percent more meetings with foreign leaders than Obama did.

Breitbart reports:

A review of both presidencies reveals that Obama met with about 20 foreign leaders through July 6, 2009, not including international summits or the United Nations and other institutions. Trump has met with about 30 leaders through June 6, 2017 — not including summits, the UN, or the Palestinian Authority.

Below is a chronological list of the two presidents’ meetings with foreign leaders, with repeat meetings excluded. The list does not include meetings around the G-8 or G-20, where both would have met leaders from the same countries. The list does not include telephone calls or meetings with officials such as foreign ministers. (It also excludes Obama’s June 2009 meeting with Zimbabwe’s then-Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, since President Robert Mugabe held real power, and the position of prime minister was later abolished.)

President Trump is not an “isolationist” — he’s very active in foreign policy. Unlike Obama, he’s not leading from behind.
