Job Scope and Salary of PM Lee and President Obama

Interesting video comparing the 2 great leaders of our time. While PM Lee's worry about the TPP is understandable, but it is still not a life and death issue like those that President Obama needs to worry about on a daily basis. 

If I heard it correctly from Obama's speech, the Singapore Foreign Minister is so free to translate PM Lee's program into Javascript, it shows the extent of the ball-carrying by the Ministers and of the complacency problems we are facing in the Cabinet. Here's the comment from the video:

Interesting to show the wide differences in terms of salary and job scope between the Prime Minister of Singapore PM Lee Hsien Loong and that of the President of the United States of America, President Barack Obama. 

PM Lee is getting more than 4 times the pay of Obama, but the job scope and responsibility in terms of population and land area covered is so much lesser. And while PM Lee can afford time to write computer programs to solve puzzles, which only Michelle Obama could possibly find the time to use such a program, the other is having to worry about ISIS, North Korea, China, Russia, and not to mention the fight internally with the Republicans and the jerk called Trump, and worrying about lives of all Americans around the world.
