President Barack Obama on Monday seemed to imply that Hillary Clinton's campaign tactics were at the core of her loss to President-elect Donald Trump, according to a story in The Washington Post.

During the first press conference the president has given since last week's election of Trump, Obama was asked what advice he would give to Democrats on the direction of the party. Obama's response seemed to throw some shade Clinton's way, saying a grass-roots strategy is better than national press strategy.

"I won Iowa not because the demographics dictated that I would win Iowa," the Post quoted Obama. "It was because I spent 87 days going to every small town and fair and fish fry and VFW Hall, and there were some counties where I might have lost, but maybe I lost by 20 points instead of 50 points.

"There's some counties maybe I won, that people didn't expect, because people had a chance to see you and listen to you and get a sense of who you stood for and who you were fighting for."

Clinton was criticized for not campaigning in traditional blue states Michigan and Wisconsin, which she ended up losing, and for losing big in Iowa, a state Obama won by 6 points in 2012, the Post reported.
