Barack Obama’s final press conference was a contrast in style to his successor Donald Trump, but both Presidents are more focused on domestic than foreign policy, Professor Robert Guttman told Radio Sputnik.

On Wednesday Barack Obama gave his last press conference as US President, and began with a remark of appreciation for the assembled journalists and the press in general.

He answered questions on a range of topics, including his recent decision to commute the sentence of Chelsea Manning, anti-Russian sanctions and his successor Donald Trump.

Professor Robert Guttman, an expert in American politics from Johns Hopkins University who was at the press conference, told Radio Sputnik that the outgoing President was keen to focus on the positives of his presidency.

“It was a President who’s been President for two terms trying to justify everything for history. Everybody tries to think about their legacy, their last year in office,” Guttman said.
