WASHINGTON: Barack Obama and his successor Donald Trump
held a 90-minute transition meeting in the Oval Office Thursday,
making a public show of putting their bitter differences aside.
Moreover, Obama vowed his support after an “excellent conversation” and
pledged his administration would keep supporting him.
“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,” Obama told Donald Trump.
Trump said the pair “discussed a lot of different situations — some
wonderful and some difficulties,” and said he looked forward to
receiving Obama’s counsel.
The two men ended the historic White House encounter with a
handshake and refused to take questions.
