Obama on Trump victory: we are now all rooting for his success | Reuters

WASHINGTON President Barack Obama urged Democrats on Wednesday to put aside their disappointment after Republican Donald Trump won the race to replace him and work toward a successful transition of presidential power."We are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country," Obama said after a bitter campaign where he worked hard on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's behalf to defeat Trump, who has pledged to undo Obama's top legislative and executive accomplishments.

"I want to make sure that hand-off is well executed because ultimately we're all on the same team," Obama said.
