Josh Earnest, the White House Press Secretary, highlighted on Wednesday the need to ensure smooth presidential changeover and further added that Barack Obama, present US President, will continue his position till January 20, 2017.
Earnest notified in his White House speech that Obama will hold his Presidential position till January 20, 2017. The reason behind this decision is the thoughts that make him think about the challenges that Trump may face, hence the need of smooth presidential transition.
He was also surprised over the fact that people who voted for Obama, voted for Donald Trump in the elections.
Though Obama supported Hillary Clinton to defeat Trump, on Wednesday he expressed his thoughts and wished Trump luck for his further presidential journey to unite and lead the country in a better way.
