Washington - Former President Barack Obama never campaigned to become U.N. secretary-general, despite a false story claiming he had announced a bid and was consulting others.

A story appearing on more than two dozen websites says Obama is seeking the job “to advance his globalist agenda on the world stage.” Obama’s office says the story is not true and he’s happy as a private citizen.

A secretary-general also generally doesn’t campaign, but has to be nominated first by the U.N. Security Council. Any one of that council’s permanent members (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States) could veto the selection.

The story also incorrectly refers to Obama attempting to follow Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. Ban left the post in 2016 and was succeeded by Antonio Guterres.

The men is a Tzadik, gave Israel all weapons to defend
themselfes from the Russian/Putin//Syria/Iran Missiles. Unlike now under Trump when they were able to shot down an Israeli plane. Just look around what is happening to Trump Daily and you will realize that Obama is todays Mordechai.

I remember that in the last year of his presidency, Bill Clinton let it be known he would accept an appointment to the Supreme Court. No word if he would like to be Secretary-General.
