Trump and Obama Hold Cordial 90-Minute Meeting in Oval Office

Today the President- Elect, Donald Trump met with President Obama at the White House to discuss the transition of power. In the "excellent and wide ranging" 90 minute meeting President Obama said  to Donald Trump, "I want to emphasize to you, Mr. President-elect, that we now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed, then the country succeeds." Mr. Trump said that he had never met with President Obama before and only expected the meeting to last about 10 - 15 minutes and then stated that it had been a "great honor" to sit down with President Obama. Both teams are prepared to work together to make this upcoming transition a smooth one.
