  1. Is it me or does it seem like President Obama is uncomfortable he's handling the questions professionally as he can but the interviewer and these questions.

  2. It was the mistake of Ht team to let Karan Thapar take the interview of the such great personality and also disappointment for audience too. It could be great with any other anchor.

  3. Mr. Hussain Obama is being disingenuous! He was brought up as a Muslim in Muslim countries and his father abandoned his family when he was child! His father's family have been muslims for generations! His father had four wives while still married to Mr.Obama's mother! Mr.Obama favoured Pakistan and was indifferent to Indian interests! Please check the facts! Don't believe this man! The anchor must be a Congress lackey! I'm Sri Lankan Canadian!

  4. India is a blessed country!!! India will be a blessing to other countries around the world/around the earth in the near future!!! I see our creator/God/Heavenly Father has a super plan for India in the near future……I think this way, because, I strongly believe, the Bible prophesy/promise about Daughter of Zion is from India……….and Daughter Zion will be revealed to the world in the days or years to come………….Then the prophesy/promise of our creator in Isaiah 66:12 will take place: “For this is what the Lord says: “I will extend peace to her like a river, and the wealth of nations like a flooding stream; you will nurse and be carried on her arm and dandled on her knees. As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you;”………………. Then, the everlasting peace and happiness will flow into peoples’ minds/lives all over the earth………..all people in todays’ world live in fear about various issues that we encounter, read, and see in news every day-and that will come to an end…….there will not be any evil-driven people (ignorance, fights, persecution, crimes, etc.)…..Evil kingdom (hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, envy, etc. as in Galatians 5: 19) in peoples’ minds/lives will go away………….Heavenly Kingdom (fruit of divine spirit: everlasting peace, joy, kindness, faithfulness, self-control, etc., as in Galatians 5: 22) will be established in peoples’ minds/lives………Majority of people on the face of this earth live in ignorance……….they attack, hurt, kill their fellow humans……we hear in everyday news……Ignorance is the lack of true knowledge about our creator……no God fearing in such people……Ignorant people are living in darkness…..they don’t know what they are doing……they hurt others……whoever follows the word of Grace and truth of our creator from Lord Jesus Christ will never walk in ignorance/darkness, but will have the light of life (Gospel John 8: 12)……Lord Jesus Christ brought Grace and truth……Those who believe in the word of Grace of our creator and truth about our creator will understand the truth and the truth will set them free (Gospel John 8: 31)……Those who have the light of life/wisdom in them will be like Lord Jesus Christ-He felt compassion on suffering humanity and delivered many people out of their sufferings……..Jesus Christ is the only one way for the forgiveness of our sins….Authority over the spirit (heaven and earth) is given to anyone who believes in Lord Jesus Christ’s words and follows Him…… Those who walk in the truth told by Lord Jesus Christ is walking in the light and they are light for others who walk in the darkness-to lift them out of darkness/ignorance……………Lord Jesus Christ came with Grace and Truth from our creator to lift us (humanity) up from the pit of sin, to lift us up from ignorance about our
    creator and His creations, to lift us up from sufferings, to forgive our sins, to place us in the Heavenly Kingdom, to give us everlasting peace and happiness in us……….I wish if the whole world understand that Lord Jesus Crist came to give us Grace and truth, and not to establish a religion…….religion is to do things to please God…..Our creator is already pleased in His Son Jesus Christ and when we model Jesus Christ and walk on this earth like Jesus Christ, our creator/God is
    pleased in our lives(Gospel Luke 9: 35; Gospel Luke 3: 21)……………………I understand, this secret/truth will be completely revealed in peoples' wisdom when Daughter Zion is revealed to the world!……….Now this Truth is blocked in many peoples' wisdom (2 Corinthians 4: 4)…………many are ignorant about the truth about their creator……. promises in our creator's Grace such as in Isaiah 65: 17 will take place when Daughter Zion is revealed……………promise as in Isaiah 40: 4: will take place -Every valley-like lives shall be raised up, every mountain-like and hill-like lives made low,,,,,,,and the Glory of the Lord will be revealed,,,,,,For the mouth of the Lord has spoken"………………………………………. Gospel John 12: 15:  “Do not be afraid, Daughter Zion; see, your king is coming, ……………Bible Verses on Daughter Zion from prophets:  Isaiah 62: 11; Zephaniah 3: 14; Zechariah 2: 10; Micah 4: 13; Psalms 48: 1,2,……………………. As in Gospel Mathew 24: 14, “And this gospel of the Heavenly kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come [end will come to the evil-kingdom that is currently existing in people’s lives due to ignorance about their creator]……………………………………………………………………………………….So, all Information and Technology superfast advancements I see as a fulfilment of this promise of Heavenly Kingdom that will take place with the coming of Daughter of Zion………………..I am waiting for the promised new earth where righteousness dwells (2 Peter 3: 13)….

  5. It is quite obvious that Obama's comments about Modi was only politeness. You can make it out from his observation about M M Singh which came from his heart and brains.

  6. Fuck the host, we love indians, we were indians once too. It's not about Indians or us it's about loving the human nature. There are extremists all around the world, but we got to condemn them rather than the whole country or race.Love, From Pakistan.

  7. The title of the video says "HT Leadership Summit".. The interview revolves around political agenda & private conversations of President Obama.

    Now as far as the content which CNN-News 18 has written in description part, clearly shows the extent to which CNN-News 18 can go, in creating illusion in minds of viewers. Its written in their description "The former president also weighed in on the Narendra Modi versus Manmohan Singh debate, saying both had India-US relations in mind. Obama discussed India's role in the international arena and his relationship with Modi even as he spoke about the dangers of technology."
    Statement 1. President Obama never "weighed" our PM Modi and Dr. Manmohan Singh, he mentioned about his own experience in working with both the Prime ministers. Its CNN-News 18, who either perceives or "wants us to perceive" that President Obama weighed both of them.
    Statement 2. India's role in international arena, his relationship with PM Modi & dangers of technology are three separate issues which were discussed (obviously poorly questioned by the interviewer and absolutely pathetically combined in the statement of CNN-News 18 description statement of this video.)

    Well CNN-News 18, calling out such an distinguished personality & speaking with him' on politics & private conversations, to draw attention of his' followers and wait for them (the followers) to create an issue or a buzz which you think can help you to market personalities like RaGa & Pilot (as you showed them multiple times in the video) for upcoming elections!

    CNN-News18, India is playing chess & you think its checkers, period!

  8. The DNC lost over one thousand seats under Obama's presidency, the dept. doubled, The DNC was left in financial ruins, his district of Chicago has had record murders, The race relations in the US became at an all time low, There is a record number of black men in the US prisons, the terrorist group called Isis gained their power with American weapons, Russia has control of twenty percent of US uranium.etc etc etc The American voters spoke on election day and do not need your bull shit excuses for why you blew one point two billion dollars TO LOSE.

  9. this putz is unqualified., wait i take that back hes totally qualified on how to muck things up. hes got us in a real dangerous situation in korea wish this jerk would stay over there

  10. Leave it to FAKE NEWS CNN to cover what the former CORRUPT PRESIDENT OBAMA has to say!!!Obama covered up all the Bribery Extortion with Uranium one deal!!!Just like Loretta Lynch his Corrupt AG!!!

  11. Stupid media people always bring their Agenda into everything. Such a shameless person Karan thapor is when obama was tearing him apart he was still giving typical Sickular smile (very similar to NCP leader sitting in front)
