"I think he recognizes that this is different", President Obama said. What's he going to tell them? "The good thing is, is that there are going to be elections coming up, so theres a built-in incentive for him to try to do that", he said.

"These worldwide agreements, the tradition has been that you carry them forward across administrations, particularly if, once you actually examine them, it turns out that they are doing good for us and binding other countries into behaviour that will help us", Obama, 55, told reporters at a White House news conference.

However, he did note that during his 90-minute meeting with Trump last week, he told him it was important to send signals of unity early on.

As of November 15, there are 65 days until President Barack Obama leaves office and Donald Trump takes his place.

Obama held the press conference before embarking on his last overseas trip as president.

For years, Trump has loudly opposed Obama's performance in the White House, but he has been most vocal in perpetuating the racist birther lie. "Given the population distribution across the country, we have to compete everywhere. we have to show up everywhere". During his presidential campaign Trump described North Atlantic Treaty Organisation as "obsolete" and suggested that he may not honor the organization's most sacred covenant of mutual defense in the face of outside aggression.

Mr. Obama also declined to comment when asked about the president-elect's selection of Breitbart Chair Steve Bannon for a top White House position. I think it's important for me not to be bigfooting that conversation.

President-elect Donald Trump won the 2016 election as the ultimate Washington outsider, but he may need to brush up on what his job will be inside the White House.

"The people have spoken, Donald Trump will be the next president".

According to the Wall Street Journal, as President Obama gave Trump a survey course in what leading the country entails, "Mr. Trump seemed surprised by the scope [of the job], said people familiar with the meeting". He says Trump will have more "time and space" to make "judicious decisions".

Lastly, the French President, Francois Hollande also congratulated him, whilst also stating that this election had brought about a period of uncertainty.

Officials described President-elect Trump's visit as a wake-up call of sorts, revealing the work to be done with the new White House staff before President-elect Trump is sworn in.

Obama said the reassurance is "one of the most important functions" he can serve during the trip.

It was a sharp change in tone for Obama, who regularly mocked Trump's candidacy in the last days before the election, even accusing the billionaire businessman and former reality television star of helping the Islamic State group with his rhetoric about Muslims and undermining US democracy through his claims of a "rigged" election.

Following the depressing results of last week's presidential election (and perhaps spurred on by Biden's amazingly petty sign of the cross moment), many memers have begun capitalizing on the fun-loving duo's personable public images, with Biden acting as an impish instigator and Obama as a more measured, adult-like figure. "And hopefully then you correct for it", the president said. The weeklong tour was planned when it seemed certain Hillary Clinton would win the contest and was created to reassure the world that the USA had regained its footing after a toxic campaign.
