President Barack Obama is scheduled to attend a state dinner with Greek President Prokopis Pavlopoulos at the presidential mansion in Athens on Tuesday, marking an end to the first day of his final foreign trip as commander-in-chief.
Earlier Tuesday, Obama spoke alongside Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras in Athens, where he cautioned global leaders to learn from Donald Trump’s election and listen to people’s fears about globalization.
Obama earlier attempted to put minds at rest on Trump’s rhetoric about renegotiating the U.S. relationship with NATO, saying there would be “”significant continuity even as we see a transition in government in the United States.”
He will tour the Acropolis on Wednesday before flying to Berlin, Germany, where he will meet E.U. leaders including Chancellor Angela Merkel.
