PHOTOS: Obama meets Donald Trump, shakes the man he condemned as unfit


US President Barack Obama and the President-elect Donald Trump met at the White House this morning for more than 90 minutes in a public display of unity intended to help the country move on after the shocking results of Tuesday's presidential election.






The two men had never met each other. President-elect Donald Trump said he intended for the getting-to-know-you meeting to last ten to 15 minutes but it went on much longer.

He described Obama as a 'very good' man when it was finished as a pack of reporters hurled questions.


He added that he looked forward to receiving Obama’s counsel.
'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.'
Obama spoke first, telling reporters his top priority was 'ensure our president-elect is successful'. 

'I have been very encouraged by…the interest in President Elect Trump's wanting to work with my team,' he said.

They ended the historic White House encounter with a handshake.

A few months back, President Obama had declared Mr. Trump entirely unfit to serve as president.

  1. Likewise, Trump has also tweeted that "Obama would probably go down as the worst president in history" a few months ago. They both sassed each other, not one of them is holy
