U.S. President, Barack Obama has come to the defense of President-Elect, Donald Trump and has urged the World to give Trump time rather than assuming the worst.
Obama spoke to Latin Americans at the end of an international farewell tour that included visits to Greece and Germany, Reuters reports.
“My main message to you … and the message I delivered in Europe is don’t just assume the worst,” Obama told a group of young people during a question-and-answer session in
Peru on Saturday.
“Wait until the administration is in place, it’s actually putting its policies together, and then you can make your judgments as to whether or not it’s consistent with the international community’s interest in living in peace and prosperity together.”
“It will be important for everybody around the world to not make immediate judgments but give this new president-elect a chance to put their team together, to examine the issues, to determine what their policies will be, because as I’ve always said, how you campaign isn’t always the same as how you govern,” Obama said.
