An awkward meeting after a divisive campaign. Trump ripped apart BHO’s policies and Barry said The Donald was supported by the KKK.
The Trumps arrived and entered through the back entrance at the South Lawn of the White House.
President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump talked for more than 90 minutes in the Oval Office while their wives visited separately.
A public display of unity intended to help the country digest the shocking results of Tuesday’s presidential election, the president-elect called Obama a ‘very good man’.
‘I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel,’ he said in a statement. ‘He explained some of the difficulties some of the high flying assets, some of the really great things that have been achieved.’
The sitting president stressed that his top priority was ‘ensure our president-elect is successful.’
‘I have been very encouraged by the interest in President-elect Trump to work with my team around many of the issues that this great country faces and I believe that it is important for all regardless of party and regardless of political preferences to now come together, work together to deal with the many challenges we face,’ he said.

Melania Trump met with Michelle Obama separately.
The historic meeting that took place today was very different from the transition in 2008.
The initial meeting of the current President and the President-elect was not caught on film because reporters were not permitted to access the back door. The Wall Street Journal had reported that the White House had cancelled the photo-op. Obama’s spokesman denied this. The White House has forcefully stated that there was more access for the Press than there was during the Bush-Obama transition.
When the White House changed hands in 2008, journalists were permitted to photograph the Obamas arrival and the Bushes posed for photos with the Obamas. None of that happened today.
We’re sure it was just an oversight.
