First up, to the southern European country of Greece, where Air Force One touched down yesterday. It's the first stop of Barack Obama's last international trip as U.S. president. From here, he'll be headed to the countries of Germany and Peru and one thing he's certain to hear in every nation he visits, questions about his successor, U.S. President Donald Trump and American policies in the meantime.
President-elect Trump campaigned very strongly against President Obama's policies. And the last time he took questions from reporters overseas, Mr. Obama expressed confidence that American voters would reject Mr. Trump as president. But that was before the election, in September, on a trip to Asia. And now, as he navigates through Europe and South America, the president is working to reassure other countries about America's future.
BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I think it's fair to say that I was surprised by the election results, and I've said so. I still don't feel responsible for what the president-elect says or does, but I do feel a responsibility as president of the United States to make sure that I facilitate a good transition and I present to him as well as the American people my best thinking, my best ideas about how you move the country forward.
