A somber President Obama stepped in front of the White House Monday afternoon and assured Americans that his transition team would do all it could to ensure a smooth transition of power to President-elect Donald J. Trump, despite their differences.
“I have instructed my team to follow the example that President Bush’s team set 8 years ago,” as he praised his predecessor, President George W. Bush, for providing him with a great transition team.
“The peaceful transition of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy,” the president said as he congratulated, and pledged his support to work with, the next president.
“We have to remember that we’re actually all on one team,” President Obama said. “We are Americans first.”
His speech came less than an hour after Hillary Clinton delivered a teary-eyed concession speech that, ironically, was the best speech of her entire career.
But social media had its own ideas of Obama’s speech.
