Obama hits at populist strongmen in last UN address

President Barack Obama used his farewell UN address Tuesday to castigate strongmen and populists, taking aim at Vladimir Putin’s Soviet nostalgia and Donald Trump’s rise at home. Obama told the UN General Assembly that democracy remains the “firmest foundation for human progress” as he repudiated “crude populism” that has mushroomed in the United States and around the world. “Some argue the future favors the strongman,” Obama said, in remarks that will echo in the 2016 US campaign as much as the Kremlin, or Tiananmen Square.
