Trump, Obama Tie in Preference Poll

But Obama is not going to go out quietly - and heres how to watch Obama's farewell address before Trump takes over for good. President Barack Obama says the prison located on a US naval base in Cuba is too costly and serves as a recruitment tool for terrorist organizations.

"There should be no further releases from Gitmo", Donald Trump tweeted on Tuesday. The Obama family has a home in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood and his presidential library is slated to be built in the the nearby Jackson Park.

The White House says Obama is also planning last-minute commutations and pardons. "And over the 220 years since, many American presidents have followed his lead". Ten are charged with crimes and the remaining 26 are held as indefinite detainees in the war on terror, or "forever prisoners".

Trump came out marginally on top, with 45 percent of respondents to a Morning Consult/Politico poll indicating they would prefer Trump and 44 percent stating they would rather a third term for Obama.

President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday called for an immediate halt to detainee transfers from the controversial us military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

This is seen as a slap in the face to President Obama, as in many ways this was his defining achievement while in office.

Mr Obama has approved transfers regularly but the Republican-dominated Congress tightened restrictions, requiring the Pentagon to report that security standards have been met at least 30 days before any such move.
