Former President Barack Obama urged President Trump to put the country first and concede the election to Joe Biden during a “60 Minutes” interview that aired Sunday night. “My advice to President Trump is, if you want at this late stage in the game to be remembered as somebody who put country first, it’s time for you to do the same thing,” Obama said. Obama provided a civics lesson in explaining his current advice for Trump. “Well, a president is a public servant. They are temporary occupants of the office, by design,” he said. “And when your time is up then it is your job to put the country first and think beyond your own ego, and your own interests, and your own disappointments.”
