Obama's not-so-secret admirer - Donald Trump

"People should take a wait-and-see approach in how much his policy proposals, once he's in the White House, once he's sworn in, match up with the rhetoric of his campaign", Obama, who spent the weekend in meetings at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) said.

But he cautioned that if Trump and his administration's policies begin to attack American values, he might be compelled to speak up.

The chamber supported President Obama's efforts for comprehensive immigration reform, a move that was thwarted by widespread opposition from conservatives in Congress who emphasized the need for stronger border security.

Obama reasserted his private vow to Organizing for Action on the public stage during a press conference in Lima, Peru on Sunday.

On Sunday, Obama offered a guarded response when asked how he could be certain Trump would be more moderate as president than he campaigned.

Hinting at what life might look like once he exits the White House, Obama outlined his plans for the short term. The president took the opportunity to praise the prosperity built in America and the rest of the world through trade agreements, and he also offered advice to Trump and members of Congress.

Neither the Philippine side nor the USA side requested a bilateral meeting between the two leaders, showing how the relationship between the treaty allies had cooled since Mr. Duterte assumed office in June.

Donald Trump may not be able to pursue numerous positions he took during his election campaign, US President Barack Obama has said.

His historic presidency and charisma have made Obama a rock star on the global scene, even at times when the daily grind of politics dimmed the glow around his election as the United States' first black president in 2008.

The talks come largely in the context of what the election of Trump will mean to efforts to seek peace in Ukraine and Syria, the strength of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance, trade agreements, efforts to fight climate change, and other pressing matters.

"I can't be sure very well, I think like everyone else, we will have to wait and see", Obama said.

Obama's words go against tradition, with most former USA presidents choosing not to comment on their successors.

"I think the issue is, we do have the makings of an administration that could do more damage to democratic norms than any presidency in my lifetime", Tanden said. Some of Trump's more definitive stances (such as his hostility to trade deals and conciliatory stance toward Russia) also run diametrically opposed to establishment Republican thought, not to mention Democratic preferences.

But Mr Obama argued for a foreign policy in which the USA continues to take on the biggest global problems of the day, lead where others stand on the sidelines and help the least fortunate. Mr Trump said earlier that Mr Giuliani was a candidate for secretary of state "and other things".
