President Obama, Donald Trump meeting at the White House to go over transition


ABC Breaking News | Latest News Videos

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Barack Obama is set to welcome his successor, Donald Trump, to the White House, extending an olive branch to a man he blasted as unfit to serve as commander in chief and who led the charge to challenge the legitimacy of his own presidency.

The Oval Office meeting on Thursday symbolically begins the transition of power. Obama is a Democrat who ushered in a sweeping health care law and brokered a landmark nuclear accord with Iran. Trump is a Republican who has vowed to wipe those measures away after he takes office on Jan. 20.

First lady Michelle Obama also plans to meet privately in the White House residence with Trump’s wife, Melania Trump.
