And so it begins. President Elect-Trump trekked it to the White House to meet with President Obama this morning. And our President's face says it all. Deets on their ridiculously long convo inside, plus Trump admitting to never having met the President until today...
President Obama's team started the process of preparing or a smooth transition of power almost a year ago. While they likely never thought in a million years Donald Trump and his people would be on the receiving end, we're here anyway.
President Obama welcomed Trump and associates to the people's house to discuss the big transition. It seems Donald was on his best behavior and not on his reality show kick. He even admitted that he had never met President Obama until today. Interesting, since he had such an incredible amount of personal attacks for the President. Just as interesting as his relationship with Putin that he now claims does not exist after talking about how he's his good friend.
Anywho, the two met about all things Presidential. Obama, being the classy man that he is, told the press afterwards:
"We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed, because if you succeed, the country succeeds," Obama said.
“I believe that it is important for all of us, regardless of party and regardless of political preferences, to now come together, work together to deal with the many challenges that we face,” he said.
“I look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel,” Trump said.
President Obama revealed that First Lady Michelle Obama had an “excellent conversation” with Trump’s wife, Melania. Melania says she IS a fan of hers, afterall. POTUS said they plan to “make sure they feel welcome as they prepare to make this transition.”
If you care, Trump is set to give his first post-election interview to 60 Minutes. It tapes this Friday.
