Earnest on Wednesday was responding to questions on what are the things Obama would like President-elect Donald Trump to do when it comes to Indo-US relationship.

"So, I have not heard the incoming President articulate what ideas he has for the relationship between the US and India, but Obama has certainly found that relationship one that is worth investing in and he certainly is optimistic about the ability to strengthen the US economically and to enhance our influence around the globe by strengthening our relationship with India," Earnest said.
