Obama says advised Trump not to attempt to run presidency like family business

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.
