Obama the liar, picked the highest number, not the average. Obama is a liar.

But Obama acknowledged that there was a common theme in the recent U.S. presidential election, Britain’s vote in June to leave the European Union, and other populist movements elsewhere.
“Globalization, combined with technology, combined with social media and constant information, have disrupted people’s lives, sometimes in very concrete ways,” he said. “But also psychologically, people are less certain of their national identities or their place in the world. It starts looking different and disorienting.”
“And there is no doubt that has produced populist movements, both from the left and the right, in many countries in Europe. When you see a Donald Trump and a Bernie Sanders, very unconventional candidates, have considerable success, obviously there’s something there that’s being tapped into,” he said. “I think at times of significant stress, people are going to be looking for something, and they don’t always know exactly what it is that they’re looking for, and they might opt for change, even if they’re not entirely confident what that change will bring.” [Is he talking about himself?]
Obama had hoped that his visit to Europe would reassure America’s allies as he prepared to leave office. But it has been dominated by questions about what a Trump presidency means for the long-standing transatlantic alliance.
Tsipras, for his part, thanked Obama for his support over the years and said he was hopeful the U.S.- Greece alliance would remain unchanged.
Echoing Obama’s recent remarks, Tsipras warned that it would be difficult for Trump to “radically change the foreign policy of a country such as the United States.” He urged his fellow European leaders to work with the new president, by building “bridges, not walls.”
Both Tsipras and Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos met with Obama on Tuesday, and they pressed him to lobby European Union officials to forgive some of Greece’s debt as well as accept some of the refugees now stranded in the country.
“We strive to make all our partners understand that it is our duty to stay on the path of European integration, [zionist homogenization] far from phobic syndromes and lack of solidarity, which can only undermine our common [homogenized] European future,” Pavlopoulos said.
During the news conference, Tsipras said his government was committed to making institutional reforms. [Rothschild IMF dictates.] Additional debt relief, he said, would make it more politically acceptable “because after seven years, people cannot take any more austerity.”
