President Barack Obama will publicly address the shock election of Donald Trump as his successor for the first time Wednesday, the White House said.

With the world's hyper-power facing an uncertain future and Obama's eight-year legacy under mortal threat, the outgoing president will speak in the Cabinet Room of the White House at 12:15 pm (1715 GMT).
