In his final White House press conference, President Obama said he’s emphasized to President-elect Trump the importance of surrounding himself with a strong team of advisers.
"This is a job of such magnitude that you can’t do it by yourself," Obama said. "You are enormously reliant on a team: your cabinet, your senior White House staff, all the way to fairly junior folks in their 20s and 30s, but executing on significant responsibilities. And so, how you put a team together to make sure that they are getting you the best information and they are teeing up the options is probably the most useful constructive advice I’ve been able to give him."
While the president has offered his advice and counsel to Trump, Obama said it’s fitting that the president-elect will pursue a different agenda from his own.
