Forbes List of World’s Most Powerful People: 1. Putin, 2. Trump… 48. Obama


Forbes released it current list of the World’s Most Powerful People. Russia’s Vladimir Putin was listed at number one on the list with President-Elect Donald Trump listed at number two. Angela Merkel of Germany was number three.



Way down the list at number 48 is the current President of the United States, Barack Obama. Kim Jong-un of North Korea was listed above Obama at number 43.

China stole a US underwater drone while the US watched on Thursday in the South China Sea. Obama’s lack of a response probably didn’t halt his free-fall on the list of World’s Most Powerful.
