Donald Trump Met Barack Obama For The First Time

They’ve been arch-enemies for years, but until today Donald Trump and Barack Obama had never actually met. And their first encounter was at the White House, with the whole world watching.

The President-elect and the outgoing President were set for one of the most uncomfortable political meetings of all time.

It was set against Obama saying Trump was “uniquely unfit” to lead the country, and Trump spending years questioning – wrongly – whether Obama was born in America.

After their private meeting, Obama told reporters the 90-minute meeting was “excellent” – and his successor said he looked forward to receiving the outgoing President’s “counsel”. A surprise to many, Trump revealed they had “never met each other”.

At the close of the Oval Office sit-down, Obama said to Trump, “We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed the country succeeds.”
