So long from White House: Obama aims final messages at Trump

Divulging some of his advice to the incoming president, Obama said he's told Trump, "This is a job of such magnitude that you can't do it by yourself."Trump was ridiculed by Democrats for saying during his Republican convention speech that "I alone" can fix the problems ailing the nation.

After eight years in office, the president suggested he's eager to step away from the political spotlight for a time. "I want to be quiet a little bit and not hear myself talk so darn much," he said Wednesday. But he also served notice that as an ex-president, he would speak out if Trump violates America's "core values."For all his campaign warnings about the dire implications of a Trump presidency and the threat the 45th president poses to his own policy achievements, Obama insisted he was at ease, even optimistic, upon stepping aside.

"At my core, I think we're going to be OK," he said.
