Forbes Just Released Its 'Most Powerful People in the World' List & How Far Obama's Fallen is a Killer: After two terms in office, President Obama will soon no longer reside at the White House.
With Trump coming to take his place, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is going to get an extreme-home makeover. In fact, there might be so much change and repeal, Obama's two milestones: The Patient Affordable Care Act and the Iran nuclear deal may end up in the trash bin of history.
Forbes appears to already see Obama's influence, legacy, and power waning at an extreme pace.
In 2015, Obama was listed as the third most powerful person in the world, via Forbes's annual list. Back then, the publication wrote, in part:
U.S. President Barack Obama fell one spot on this year’s list to #3. There’s no doubt that the United States remains the world’s greatest economic, cultural, diplomatic, technological and military power.
But as Obama enters the final year of his presidency, it’s clear his influence is shrinking, and it’s a bigger struggle than ever to get things done.
