A lot of comments/feedbacks followed, positive and negative. Well, mostly negative. And in Twitter, the #TrumpProtest has been trending.

Here are some parts of Obama’s message to the people after the 2016 election.

“I had the chance to talk to President-elect Trump last night, about 3:30 in the morning, I think it was, to congratulate him on winning the election and I had a chance to invite him to come to the White House tomorrow to talk about making sure that there is a successful transition between our presidencies.

A lot of our fellow Americans are exultant today. A lot of Americans are less so. But that’s the nature of campaigns. That’s the nature of democracy. It is hard. And sometimes contentious and noisy. And it’s not always inspiring. Sometimes you lose an argument. Sometimes you lose an election. You know the path that this country’s taken has never been a straight line. We zig and zag and sometimes we move in ways that some people think is forward and others think is moving back. And that’s okay. I’ve lost elections before. Joe hasn’t. But, you know… (jokes and laughs) That’s the way politics works sometimes. We try really hard to persuade people that we’re right. And then people vote. And then if we lose, we learn from our mistakes, we do some reflection, we lick our wounds, we brush ourselves off, we get back in the arena. We go at it. We try even harder the next time. The point, though, is that we all go forward with the presumption of good faith in our fellow citizens because that presumption of good faith is essential to a vibrant and functioning democracy. That’s how this country has moved forward for 240 years. It’s how we’ve pushed boundaries and promoted freedom around the world. That’s how we’ve expanded the rights of our founding to reach all of our citizens. It’s how we have come this far. And that’s why I’m confident that this incredible journey that we’re on, as Americans, will go on. And I’m looking forward to doing everything I can to make sure that the next president is successful in that. I’ve said before, I think of this job as being a relay runner. You take the baton, you run your best race, and hopefully, by the time you hand it off, you’re a little further ahead. You’ve made a little progress. And I can say we’ve done that, and I want to make sure that hand-off is well-executed, because ultimately we’re all on the same team.”

His message to everyone is to have faith in democracy, even if you disagree with the election’s outcome. This is what true leaders should sound like–with poise, honor and maturity. He’s an epitome of how a president should portray himself.
