Former President Barack Obama told a massive crowd at the Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Tuesday that we are living in “strange and uncertain times.”

In one of his highest-profile speeches since leaving office, Obama did not mention President Trump by name, but his speech comes one day after his successor held a much-criticized summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in which Trump dismissed Russian interference in the 2016 election.

The article goes on to state the following:

“The strange and uncertain times we are in — and they are strange, and they are uncertain — each day’s news cycles bringing more head spinning and disturbing headlines, I thought maybe it would be useful to step back for a moment and try to get some perspective,” Obama said in the opening of his speech.

In a speech that was littered with tacit shots at Trump, Obama reflected on how far the world has come in the last century, saying it could offer a “road map for where we need to go next.”

“That was the world just 100 years ago. There are people alive today who were alive in that world. It is hard then to overstate the remarkable transformations that have taken place since that time,” he said.

  1. Mandela was a COMMUNIST! They always leave that fact out! South Africas crime and poverty doubled, tripled then quadrupled under his rule! Johannasburg used to be one of the model beautiful world class cities, is now a crime-ridden , waste-filled slum.
