President Obama Meets with President-Elect Donald Trump at the White House

AP- US President-elect Donald Trump has said it was a “great honor” to meet President Barack Obama for transition talks at the White House.

Mr Obama said he was “encouraged” by their “excellent” and “wide-ranging” conversation, which lasted for more than an hour.

Mr Trump has questioned Mr Obama’s US citizenship and vowed to dismantle his legacy in the past.

During the campaign, Mr Obama called Mr Trump “uniquely unqualified”.

However, Mr Obama said he was “rooting” for him after his shock defeat of Hillary Clinton.

After their behind-closed-doors meeting in the White House, Mr Obama said: “My number one priority in the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our president-elect is successful.”

He said they had discussed domestic and foreign policy and he had been “very encouraged” by Mr Trump’s interest in working with President Obama’s team on issues facing the US.

Mr Trump said he would “very much look forward” to dealing with President Obama in future.
