A day after Donald Trump was named the President-Elect, President Barack Obama and the next President met at the White House for the first time.
According to reports, the two spent roughly an hour and a half together in the Oval Office. Obama invited his successor in order to facilitate a “successful transition between our presidencies.”
“As I said last night my No. 1 priority in coming two months is trying to facilitate, transition that ensures our president-elect is successful,” Obama said. “I have been very encouraged by the, I think, interest in President-elect Trump’s wanting to work with my team around many of the issues that this great country faces. And I believe that it is important for all of us, regardless of party, and regardless of political preferences to now come together, to work together.”
