Obama, Trump spoke by phone amid transition whirlwind

Before Donald Trump won the presidency, Democratic foreign policy circles hummed with talk that an outgoing President Barack Obama could take a last stab at peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians.

Obama, while speaking in Lima, Peru on the final day of his last trip overseas, spent the majority of his trip answering questions on what a Trump presidency will mean for worldwide allies - including America's influence globally.

"I want to be respectful of the office and give the President-elect an opportunity to put forward his platform and his arguments without somebody popping off in every instance", Obama said at a press conference in Lima, Peru, talking about his post-presidency plans.

However, Obama said he would speak out if core United States "values and ideals" were threatened by the Trump Presidency. That's right. On Sunday, Obama spoke his mind on Trump while he was in Lima, Peru, at the end of the last global trip of his presidency.

President Barack Obama returned to the White House yesterday, ending the last foreign tour of his tenure as he prepares to hand power over to Mr Donald Trump, amid unease about the Republican's volatility and isolationist rhetoric. He also met former critic Mitt Romney, who is now being considered for secretary of state.

"He said very nice things after the meeting and I said very nice things about him", Trump said of Obama, according to the Times.

"I believe that it is important for all of us, regardless of party and regardless of political preferences, to now come together, work together, to deal with the many challenges that we face", said Obama during what he called "an excellent conversation".
