I don't think The Donald is so easily manipulated, but we'll see.

Obama's legacy is more or less shot, and he knows it. Right now the history books will note that:

*His poor strategic insight allowed ISIS to flourish
*He destabilized Libya, mishandled the Arab spring, and in so doing allowed chaos to envelop the region
*He ignored the South China Sea, and in so doing set the stage for eventual confrontations with China.
*His signature accomplishment - Obamacare, which was passed on a strict party line vote - has come crashing down to Earth and has been exposed as a bloody mess. His successor was elected on a promise to get rid of it ASAP.
*He's the first President to never see 3% growth at any point during his term(s).

...and so much more failure.

I think he wants to ride out of office being seen as a gracious mentor, above it all. If you think about it that way it makes perfect sense: he's always seen himself as someone above the petty concerns and struggles of others, and if he can help the dullard the unwashed masses just voted in to the Oval Office and be seen doing it, his ego is satisfied.
