WATCH: Obama discusses vote, Trump before foreign trip
The Associated Press
President Barack Obama is about to hold his first news conference since Republican Donald Trump won election to succeed him.
The session with reporters on Monday was expected to focus on questions about the election, its consequences for U.S. policy and Obama's own legacy.
Obama will then depart on his last overseas trip as president. The weeklong tour was planned when it seemed certain Hillary Clinton would win the contest and was designed to reassure the world that the U.S. had regained its footing after a toxic campaign.
Obama will instead likely try to use the trip to calm world leaders about what comes next as Trump prepares to take over as president.
