Trump expresses hope for future ‘dealing’ with Obama
An amicable – if a bit stiff, and did we notice strained on the president’s part? – appearance before the cameras for the two men.
Obama says “I have been very encouraged by an interest in president-elect Trump’s wanting to work with my team around many of the issues that the country faces… it is important for all of us … to now come together, work together…
Michelle’s had the chance to greet the incoming first lady, and we’ve had an excellent conversation and want to make sure they feel welcome…
We now are gonna want to do everything we can because if you succeed the country succeeds.
We had never met.. The meeting was supposed to last 10 minutes… I have great respect… it went on for an hour-and-a-half and as far as I’m concerned it could have gone on longer… we really we discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties. I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel.
Mr president, was a great honor being with you and I look forward to being with you many many more times in the future.
