4:01 pm
>> i think he's going to try as best he can to make sure that he delivers not only for the people who voted for him but for the people at large and the good thing is there's going to be elections coming up so there's a built in incentive for him to try to do that but, you know, it's only been six days and i think it will be important for him to have the the room to staff up, to figure out what his priorities are, to be able to
4:02 pm
distinguish between what he was campaigning on and what is practical, what he can actually achieve. you know, there's certain things that make for good sound bites but don't always translate into good policy. and that's something that he and his team i think will wrestle with in the same way that every president wrestles with. i did say to him as i've said publicly that because of the nature of the campaigns and the bitterness and ferocity of the campaigns it's really important to try to send some signals of unit in the ton -- unity and to reach out to minority groups, women and
4:03 pm
other that were concerned about the tenor of the campaign. and i think, you know, that's something that he will want to do but this is all happening real fast. he's got commitments to supporters that helped to get him here and he's going to have to balance those and, you know, over the coming weeks and months and years. my hope is that those impulses ultimately win out, but a little too earl to start making judgments on that. >> you've had qualifications of that meeting with him. >> i think that he successfully mobilized a big chunk of the country to vote for him and he was going to win. he has won. he's going to be the next president and regardless of
4:04 pm
what experience or assumptions he brought to the office, this office has a way of waking you up and those -- those aspects of his positions or predispositions that don't match up with reality, he will find shaken up pretty quick because reality has a way of asserting himself and some of his gifts that obviously allowed him to execute one of the biggest political upsets in history, you know, those are ones that hopefully he will put to good use on behalf of all the american people. >> thank you mr. president.
4:05 pm
you're off to europe which is facing some of the pressures we dealt with in this country. when you spoke to the un and you talked about the choices. what choice do you think the american people made last week and is there still a chance for course direction before europeans make some of their choices? >> i think the the american people recognize that the world has shrunk, that it's interconnected, that you're not going to put that jeannie back in the bottle. the american people recognize that their careers or their kids' careers are going to have to be more dynamic that they might not be working tagging sell plant for 30 years but there they might have to change careers, they might have to get more education, they might have to
4:06 pm
retool or retrain, and i think the american people are game for that. they want to make sure that the rules of the game are fair and what that means is that if -- if you look look at surveys around america's attitude on trade the majority of the american people still support trade. but they're concerned about whether or not trade is fair and whether we got the same access to other countries' markets as they have with us, the is this a race to the bottom when it comes to wages. i made an argument thus far unsekoses fully that the trade deal we had organized tpp did exactly that, that it strengthened workers rights, environmental rights leveled
4:07 pm
the playing field and as a consequence would be good for american workers and american businesses. but that's a complex argument to make when people remember plants closing and jobs being off shored. so, part of what i think this election reflected was people wanting that course correction that you described and the the message around stopping surges of immigration, not creating new trade deals that may be unfair, i think those were themes that played a prominent role in the campaign. as we now shift to governing, my argument is that we do need to make sure that we have an orderly lawful
4:08 pm
immigration process but that if it is orderly and lawful, immigration is good for our economy. it keeps this country young. it keeps it dynamic. we have entrepreneurs and strivers who come here and are willing to take risks and that's part of the reason why america historically has been successful, it's part of the reason why our economy is stronger and better positioned than most of our other competitors is because we got a younger population that's more dynamic when it comes to trade. i think when you're governing, it will become increasingly apparent that if you were to just eliminate trade deals with mexico, for example, well, you got a global supply chain, the parts that are allowing auto plants that were about to shut down to now
4:09 pm
employ double shifts is because they're bringing in some of those parts to assemble out of mexico, and so it's not as simple as it might have seemed. and the key for us when i say us, i mean americans but i think particularly for progressives is to say your concerns are real, your anxieties are real. here's how we fix them. higher minimum wage. stronger worker protection so workers have more leverage to get a bigger piece of the pie. stronger financial regulations, not weaker ones. yes to trade but trade that ensures that these other countries trade with us aren't engaging in child labor, for example. being attentive to inequality
4:10 pm
and not tone deaf to it but offering prescriptions that are actually going to help folks in communities that feel forgotten. that's going to be our most important strategy and -- and i think we can successfully do that. people will still be looking to the united states. our example will still carry great weight. and it continues to be my strong belief that the way we are going to make sure everybody feels a part of this global economy is not by shutting ourselves off from each other, even if we could but rather by working together more effectively than we have in the past. martha raddatz. >> thanks mr. president. some of the harsh words you had about mr. trump calling him tempermentally unfit to be
4:11 pm
commander-in-chief. did anything surprise you about president-elect presidentp when you met with him in your office and i want to know does anything concern you about a trump presidency? >> well, we had a very cordial conversation and nothing surprised me to some degree because i think that he is obviously a gregarious person, somebody who i think likes to mix it up and to have a vigorous debate, and what's clear is that he was able to tap into yes, the anxieties but also the enthusiasm of his voters in a way that was
4:12 pm
impressive and i said so to him because i think that to the extent that there were a lot of folks who missed the trump phenomenon, that connection that he was able to make with his supporters, that was impervious to events that might have sunk another candidate, that's powerful stuff. i also think that he is coming to this office with fioricet hard and fast policy prescriptions than a lot of other presidents might be arriving with. i don't think he is ideological. i think ultimately he's pragmatic in that way and that
4:13 pm
can serve him well as long as he's got good people around him and he has a clear sense of direction. do i have concerns? absolutely. of course i've got concerned. you know, he and i differ on a whole bunch of issues. but the federal government and our democracy is not a speedboat. it's an ocean liner as i discovered when i came into office. it took a lot of really hard work for to us make significant policy changes, even in our first two years when we had larger majorities than mr. trump will enjoy when he comes into office, and one of the things i a advised him to do was to make sure that before he commits to certain courses of action he's really
4:14 pm
dug in and thought through how various issues play themselves out. i'll use a obvious example where we have a difference but it will be interesting to see what happens in the coming year and that's the affordable care act. obviously this has been the holy grail for republicans over the last six, seven years was we got to kill obamacare. now, that has been taken as an article of faith, that this is terrible, it doesn't work and we have to undo it. but now that republicans are in charge they got to take a look and say let's see. we got 20 million people who have health insurance who didn't have it before. healthcare costs generally have gone up at a
4:15 pm
significantly slower rate since obamacare was passed than they did before, which has saved the federal treasury hundreds of billions of dollars. people who have health insurance are benefiting in all sorts of ways that they may not be aware of everything from no longer having lifetime limits on the claims that they can make to seniors getting prescription drug discounts under medicare, to free mammograms. now, it's one thing to characterize this thing as not working when it's just an abtraction. now suddenly you're in charge and you're going to repeal it. what happens to those 20 million people who have health insurance? are you going to just kick them off and suddenly they don't have health insurance? in what ways are their lives better because of that? are you
4:16 pm
going repeal the provision that ensures that if you do have health insurance on your job and you lose your job our change jobs or you start a small business that you're not discriminated against because you have a preexisting condition? that's really popular. how are you going to replace it? are you going to change the policy that kids can stay on their parents' health insurance plan until they're 26? how are you growing -- going to approach all these issues? now, my view is that if they can come up with something better that actually works and a year or two after they've replaced the affordable care act with their own plan, that 25 million people have health insurance and it's cheaper and better and running smoothly, i'll be the first one to say that's
4:17 pm
great. congratulations. if on the other hand, whatever they're proposing results in millions of people losing coverage and results in people who already have health insurance losing protections that were contained in the legislation, then we're going to have a problem and i think that's not going to be unique to me. i think the american people will respond that way. so, i think on a lot of issues where you're going to see is now comes the hard part. now is governance. we are going to be able to present to the incoming administration a country that is stronger, a federal government that is working better and more efficiently, a national security apparatus that is both more effective
4:18 pm
and truer to our values, energy policies that are resulting in not just less pollution but also more jobs and i think the the president-elect rightly would suspect that he's judged on whether we improve from that baseline on those metrics or things get worse. and if things get worse, then the american people will figure that out pretty quick. and if things get better, then more power to him and i'll be the first to congratulate him. >> mr. president had you talked specifically about his temperament. do you still have any concern about his temperament? >> as i said 'cause athena asked the question, whatever you bring to this office, this
4:19 pm
office has a habit of magnifying and pointing out and hopefully then you correct for. this may seem like a silly example but i know myself well enough to know i can't keep track of paper. i am not well organized in that way. and so pretty quickly after i'm getting stacks of briefing books coming in every night, i said to myself i've got to figure out a system because i have bad filing, sorting and organizing habits, and i've got to find some people who can help me keep track of this stuff. now, that seems trivial but actually it ends up being a pretty big piece of business. i think what will happen with the president-elect is there are going to be certain elements of his temperament that will not serve him well
4:20 pm
unless he recognizes them and corrects them. because when you're a candidate and you say something that is inaccurate or controversial, it has less impact than it does when you're president of the united states. everybody around the world is paying attention, markets move. national security issues require a level of precision in order to make sure that you don't make mistakes. and i think he recognizes that this is different and so do the american people. all right i'm going to take just a couple more questions and then i'll get out of here. nadia. >> thanks mr. president. president-elect trump threatened to unravel the iran
4:21 pm
nuclear deal which your administration worked very hard to achieve. what are your concerns if you altered or what would you advice be considering that he said he's open to advice. [inaudible] passionately for years about benghazi and against the killing of civilians. many people [inaudible] are you [inaudible] and how do you president-elect trump states man that he won't support the syrian opposition? thank you. >> iran is a good example of the gap i think between some of the rhetoric in this town not unique to the president-elect trump and the
4:22 pm
reality. there was a really robust debate about the merits of the iran deal before it was completed. and i actually was pretty proud of how our democracy processed that. it was a serious debate. i think people of goodwill were on both sides of the issue. ultimately we were able to persuade members of congress and the public at least enough of them to support it. at the time the main argument against it was iran wouldn't abide by the deal, that they would cheat. we now have over a year of evidence that they have abided by the agreement. that's not just my opinion, it's not just people in my administration. that's the opinion of israeli military and intelligence officers who are part of a
4:23 pm
government that vehemently opposed the deal. so, my suspicion is that when the president-elect comes in and he's consulting with his republican colleagues on the hill, that they will look at the facts because to unravel a deal that's working and preventing iran from pursuing a nuclear weapon would be hard to explain particularly if the alternative were to have them freed from any obligations and go ahead and pursue a weapon and keep in mind this is not just an international agreement between us and the iranians, this is between the g5 plus one is other countries, some of our closest allies. and for us to pull out would then require us to start sanctioning those other countries in europe or china
4:24 pm
or russia that were still abiding by the deal because from their perspective iran had done what it was supposed to do. so it becomes more difficult i think to undo something that's working than undo something that isn't working. and when you're not responsible for it, i think you can call it a terrible deal. when you are responsible for the deal preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon you're more likely to look at the facts. that is going to be true in other circumstances. for example, the the paris agreement. there's been a lot of talk about the possibility of undoing this international agreement. now, you got 200 countries that have signed up for this thing and the good news is
4:25 pm
that what we've been able to show over the last five, six, eight years is that it's possible to grow the economy really fast and possible to bring down carbon emissions as well. it's not just a bunch of rules that we've set up. you've got utilities that are putting in solar panels and creating jobs. you've got the big three automakers who have seen record sales and are overachieving on the fuel efficiency standards that we set. turns out that people like not having to fill up as often and save money at the pump even if it's good for the environment. you've got states like california that have been moving forward on a clean
4:26 pm
energy agenda separate and apart from any federal regulations that have been put forward. in fact, 40 percent of the country already lives under -- in states that are actively pursuing what's embodied in the paris agreement and the clean power plant rule and even states like texas that politically tend to oppose me, you've seen huge increases in wind power and solar power and you've got some of the country's biggest companies like -- >> i'm sharrie williams alongside brian taff. we've been listening into president obama he's giving this news conference as he's about to embark on his final foreign trip. he's been talking about his eight years and also looking ford the two president-elect. >> putting a positive spin on what was a stinging him for him and his democratic party on last tuesday night. that will continues on 6abc.
