President Barack Obama speaks during a press conference at Athens

Addressing during a combined news conference with Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras on the first day of his visit Tuesday, Obama described Trump’s win as a reaction against financial uncertainty, suspicion of elites along with a desire to reign in the excesses of globalization, and said world leaders must focus on their citizens’ very real fears of inequality and economic dislocation.
“The a lot more aggressively and efficiently we handle those issues, the much less those anxieteies may channel themselves into counterproductive strategies that can pit people against one another,” Obama stated.

Obama’s speech are being observed watchfully by world leaders who see parallels between Trump’s election along with the rise of far-right and populist actions in their own nations amid persisted economic anxiety.
