Trump Meets with Obama
President-elect Donald Trump and President Obama met today in the White House according to the latest update by the Associated Press.
The AP wrote, "Obama called the 90-minute meeting "excellent," and his successor said he looked forward to receiving the outgoing president's "counsel."
Afterward, Obama said to Trump, "We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed the country succeeds."
The two men, who have been harshly critical of each other for years, were meeting for the first time, Trump said. The Republican said he looked forward "to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel."
Obama and Trump have clashed since Obama first took office when Trump made demands on Obama to prove his U.S. citizenship by releasing his birth certificate. During this year's campaign season, Obama was one of Trump's harshest critics calling him unfit for the presidency.
Publicly at least the two appear to be moving forward on good ground and working for the good of our nation. For Trump though to make good on the promises he has made to the American people, he will overthrow many of the policies Obama has put in place including Obamacare.
