While in France over the weekend, former President Barack Obama just couldn't help but take a verbal shot at his successor.

Obama said despite President Donald Trump's plan to withdraw from the landmark United Nations agreement to limit the rise in global temperatures, the USA remained on track to meet it targets.

Obama gave a speech to business leaders in the French capital on Saturday, describing what he said was the "temporary absence of American leadership on the issue".

According to Obama, more women should be in leadership roles "because men seem to be having some problems these days", according to AFP.

"Not to generalise but women seem to have a better capacity than men do, partly due to their socialisation", Obama said at an invitation-only event during a visit to Paris.

Obama's wife Michelle recently took what was seen as a subtle swipe at Trump, asking the audience at an event to spellcheck and not tweet everything that comes into their mind.
