HERE'S WHAT ELSE BARACK OBAMA HAS BEEN UP TO SINCE LEAVING OFFICE
In early March, it was reported that the former president and former First Lady Michelle Obama were in discussions with Netflix about producing a series of shows for the streaming service, according to a new report.
The shows would "highlight inspirational stories," the New York Times reported Thursday, rather than "directly respond to President Trump or conservative critics."
"President and Mrs. Obama have always believed in the power of storytelling to inspire," Eric Schultz, a senior adviser to the former president, told the Times. "Throughout their lives, they have lifted up stories of people whose efforts to make a difference are quietly changing the world for the better. As they consider their future personal plans, they continue to explore new ways to help others tell and share their stories."
