ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama comments on President-elect Donald Trump's temperament, Monday (November 14). "I think what will happen with the president-elect is there are going to be certain elements of his temperament that will not serve him well unless he recognizes them and corrects them," said Obama during a news conference at the White House. Since the election, Trump has softened one of his major campaign promises of building a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico to keep out illegal immigrants. In an interview with the CBS program "60 Minutes" on Sunday, Trump said he would accept some fencing instead of a brick-and-mortar wall. Trump also sought to play down the divisive nature of his candidacy and said Americans alarmed by his election had nothing to fear. But Demonstrators in major U.S. cities have taken to the streets to protest against Trump.
