US President Barack Obama in his final press conference abroad advised the world to "wait and see" because the presidency by Donald trump could be, from the point of view of policy, but added that he will be bad in that case, if the "ideals" of the country will be questioned.
Obama, speaking in Peru in his latest trip abroad, spent most of his conference, answering questions about what a trump presidency would mean for international allies - including America at the global level. "I want to be respectful and to give the elected President a chance to push its platform and arguments without criticism in each case," Obama said.
The President also confirmed that while he "cannot guarantee" that trump will not pursue some positions, the President said that at the moment "force" of trump in the way he approaches these issues during a conversation with his Cabinet. Obama also stressed the importance of U.S. influence in the world, saying that no other country is unable to "fill the void". "There is nobody here to fill the void. Actually, no," he said. Obama acknowledged that other countries, such as China "very important", but said that they do not work in the same scale.
President Obama said Sunday that his brief conversation with President of Russia Vladimir Putin on the sidelines in Peru that Russia's influence in the elections was not discussed because the campaign was finished. "This is for us," Obama said.
Obama called four-minute conversation with Putin as "Frank and friendly", which included discussions on Syria and Ukraine, where the President said he was "deeply concerned about the bloodshed and chaos that occur in these countries."
