FILE -- In this Nov. 9, 2015 file photo, President Barack Obama meets with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington. Doubling down on its public break with the Obama administration, a furious Israeli government said, Tuesday, Dec. 27, 2016, that it has "ironclad" information from Arab sources that Washington actively helped craft last week's U.N. resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegal. The allegations further poison the increasingly toxic atmosphere between Israel and the outgoing Obama administration in the wake of Friday's vote, and raise questions about whether the White House might take further action.

LEAD IN FILE - In this May 6, 2016, file photo, President Barack Obama speaks in the White House briefing room in Washington. He was a first-term senator-turned-president. A former law professor with little experience in economics or management. When he walked into the White House he had one, clear job: Piece together the shards of a shattered U.S. economy. It wasnt smooth and it wasnt fast, but Obama ultimately succeeded. Obama will leave behind an economy far stronger than the one he inherited by most measures.
