President Barack Obama has urged Democrats on Wednesday to put aside their disappointment and work with Donald Trump.

President Obama said it is necessary for members of the Democrats to accept Republican the President elect, who won the race to replace him and work toward a successful transition of presidential power.

"We are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country," Obama said after a bitter campaign where he worked hard on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton's behalf to defeat Trump, who has pledged to undo Obama's top legislative and executive accomplishments.

"I want to make sure that hand-off is well executed because ultimately we're all on the same team," Obama said.
