Former President Barack Obama said that America has a leadership deficit and needs “new blood” during a speech at the University of Hawaii on Sunday.

“Most of the problems we face in the world, we face not because we don’t have good technical solutions,” Obama said. He then explained that “we know how to educate poor children, we know how to fix the environment, we know how to provide economic opportunity to communities that have fallen behind.”

“What prevents us from implementing those ideas is a lack of human organization, a lack of leadership,” Obama said. “When I say leadership, I don’t just mean some politician up top, although that’s important. But I also mean people at the grassroots.”

“So, we have a deficit of leadership, and we need new blood,” Obama said.
