President Barack Obama welcomed his successor, Donald J. Trump, to the White House this morning extending an olive branch to a man he has blasted as unfit to serve.
Trump and the first lady in waiting, Melania Trump, departed from LaGuardia airport in New York at 9.36 a.m. on their way to Washington, DC, this morning on his personal aircraft, a Boeing 757, emblazoned with his name.
They arrived at Ronald Reagan National Airport just after 10.30 a.m. The future first couple entered the building via a back entrance through the South Lawn that is inaccessible to media. Today’s meeting lasted an hour and half.
President Elect Donald J. Trump sat looking poised, humble and in a state of shock as President Obama detailed their meeting in briefing the media. Trump admitted that he will need to call on President Obama for advisement and shared how the meeting could’ve lasted longer.
Trump described sitting President, Barack Obama as a ‘very good’ man when it was finished as a pack of reporters hurled questions, when President Obama said “No questions will be asked at this time”.
