President-elect Donald Trump visited the White House today and met with President Obama for over an hour. This was Trump’s first time meeting the man whom he had publicly accused of being born outside the US. However, past vitriol and slights seemed to be bygones when both spoke briefly to the press from the Oval Office afterwards. Obama even offered Trump a piece of advice about how to handle the press. Watch and see this oddly chummy and surreal moment.
