President Obama Hosts Trump at the White House

Hosted by

The formal transition of power began today when the President-elect arrived at the White House. The meeting went on for an hour and a half. Just last week, President Obama called Donald Trump unqualified for the office.  Today he told reporters that he was "encouraged by the interest in President-elect Trump's wanting to work with my team around many of the issues that this great country faces" and said he hoped Trump would be successful. As President-elect, Trump had kind words for the President he's trashed in public for the past 18 months. "We discussed a lot of situations, some wonderful some difficult. I very much look forward to dealing with the President in the future including counsel." Josh Lederman, White House reporter for the Associated Press, has more on the meeting.
