Obama’s Meeting With British Prime Minister Sparks Speculation

Former President Barack Obama was seen heading into British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s official residence on Downing Street for a meeting on Monday, sparking concerns over the former president’s alleged role in the Biden administration.

Many conservatives have long speculated that Obama was pulling the strings behind the scenes in the Biden administration, especially because he is the only president in modern history to keep a residence in Washington, D.C., after leaving office. 

Conservatives claim that Obama is still influencing the actions of the federal government, especially with his former vice president being in charge and President Joe Biden’s concerning displays of cognitive decline.


Obama’s mystery meeting with Sunak has only further fueled this speculation, though the prime minister’s office has been “keeping tight-lipped about the purpose of the one-hour meeting,” as Breitbart News noted.

The former president was seen entering the Downing Street residence alone, but later emerged with U.S. Ambassador to London Jane Hartley.

British newspaper The Daily Telegraph described the meeting as “informal” and private, citing an unnamed official. According to another British outlet, The Times, the British finance minister also entered Sunak’s residence shortly before Obama.

As Breitbart News also explained, the arrival of the British finance minister “may be seen as a pointed statement given it is thought to be possible to get to the Prime Minister’s office from the Chancellor’s through internal passageways without going onto the street to be seen by the press.”

The outlet further noted that Obama left office amid tension with the U.K., as his final meetings on Downing Street ended with him telling the British people not to vote for Brexit, and warning that if they did, the country would go “to the back of the queue” for a trade deal with the United States.


This attempt to influence the vote of a foreign country was reportedly not well-received, and the British people ultimately voted for Brexit despite Obama’s demands.

“While President Obama was out of the White House shortly after, [the] threat was made actual by eventual successor Joe Biden, who has stalled on trade with the UK since, leaving the country seeking deals with individual states instead,” Breitbart noted.

This was just one of many of Obama’s policies that were continued under Biden, leading many to call the new administration “Obama 3.0.”

Following a viral clip of Obama entering Sunak’s residence, many on social media renewed their speculation about the former president’s role in the current administration — with Emerald Robinson arguing that “Obama is actually POTUS and Biden is his puppet, and it’s obvious to everyone now.”

Many are arguing that this visit was a violation of the Logan Act, which “criminalizes negotiation by unauthorized American citizens with foreign governments.” The Obama administration weaponized this act to target former President Donald Trump’s national security adviser Michael Flynn for a conversation with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
