奥巴马总统星期三在他最后一次白宫记者会上,努力让对政府换届感到担忧的美国民众放心。他说:“我相信这个国家。我相信美国人民。我相信人们身上的善多于恶。”

白宫记者们的提问涉及到奥巴马给陆军情报分析员切尔西·曼宁减刑等议题。奥巴马简单地回答了这些问题,最后他还很具体地回答了他是如何向两个女儿解释美国大选结果的。

奥巴马总统说,玛利亚和萨沙对于共和党候选人川普击败他支持的民主党候选人希拉里·克林顿感到失望,不过令他自豪的是,她们表现得很坚强、爱国,而不是愤世嫉俗。

奥巴马总统承认,他在公开场合表现出的冷静和随和跟他私下的表现并不一样,私下他也会骂人,也像其他人一样会愤怒和沮丧。他说:“不过我深信,(作为一个国家)一切都会好的,但我们必须奋斗,必须努力,不能觉得理所当然,我相信你们会帮我们做到。”

At his final news conference as presidentWednesday, Barack Obama sought to reassure those Americans anxious about thechange of administrations: “I believe in this country. I believe in theAmerican people. I believe that people are more good than bad.”

White House reporters questioned Obamaabout his decision to shorten the prison term of former Army intelligenceanalyst Chelsea Manning, and other topics. The president fielded those easily,but took his time answering the final query, about how he discussed the resultsof the U.S. election with his two teenaged daughters, Sasha and Malia.

Obama said Malia and Sasha weredisappointed by Republican Donald Trump's defeat of his preferred candidate,Democrat Hillary Clinton, just as he and first lady Michelle were, but that heis proud of them because they are resilient, patriotic and not cynical.

The president admitted his public persona -calm and cheerful - is not quite the way he feels when behind closed doors.


I curse more than I do in public, and sometimes I get mad andfrustrated, like everybody else does," he said. "But at my core, Ithink we're going to be okay [as a country]. We just have to fight for it, wehave to work for it, and not take it for granted, and I know that you will helpus do that.”
