Incumbent US President Barack Obama urged Democrats to put aside their disappointment at the election result and work towards a smooth transition of political power.

“We are all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country,” Obama said.

“I want to make sure that the hand-off is well-executed because ultimately we are on the same team.”

Obama worked hard on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton’s behalf during the bitter campaign.

President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to undo Obama’s best legislative and executive accomplishments.
