President Barack Obama has said that he has advised his successor Donald Trump not to attempt to run the White House like a ‘family business’.
In an interview with ABC News, Obama said that President-elect Trump must respect US institutions.
“After you have been sworn in, you are now in charge of the largest organisation on Earth,” he added
He warned that there was a difference between governing and campaigning.
Obama also talked about the US intelligence agency’s report into alleged cyber-attacks by Russia and the attempt to influence the 2016 US presidential campaign. He said that he had “underestimated” the impact of such attacks.
