Trump calls Obama ‘a very good man’ after historic White House meeting

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WGNO) – President-elect Donald Trump and his vice president Mike Pence arrived in Washington this morning for their first meetings with the men they’ll replace in January.

Trump, who’s lambasted President Obama for years, stuck to the conciliatory tone he’s been using since his astonishing win on Tuesday.

The meeting lasted about an hour-and-a-half.

Both men said they look forward to working with each other as the transition of power begins, even though the two hit each other hard on the campaign trail.

This was their first face-to-face meeting.

Trump and Pence also met with Republican leaders on Capitol Hill, including House Speaker Paul Ryan.
