President Obama said Thursday he remains optimistic that Donald Trump's administration will continue to build upon the relationships the U.S. has with Germany and other European nations.
During a press conference, Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel showed a united front, touting the importance of a transatlantic alliance.
"If that voice is absent, or if that voice is divided, we will be living in a meaner, harsher, more troubled world," Obama said, describing the partnership between the U.S., Germany and other allies.
