The trip will enable President Obama to reassure the nation's allies, assuring a continuation of U.S. foreign policy and amicable relationships despite some of President-elect Trump's incidiary statements. Questions will likely come up about reports that Trump appeared “unfamiliar” with the duties of a U.S. president while meeting with his predecessor last week at the White House. Obama claimed the pair had an “excellent” discussion about the office, and the two appeared cordial during the press portion of the event.
The press conference will also be the president’s first since the election, in which Donald Trump roundly defeated Hillary Clinton, for whom Obama vigorously campaigned.
