Considering how much Obama has criticized the racist Republican over the past few weeks, this historic meeting had every chance of being awkward af.
But Obama as usual was calm and cordial, giving the President-elect a hopeful expression of goodwill:
"We now are gonna do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed then the country succeeds."See both men describe their private meeting (below)!
Even Trump stayed more or less composed (just a touch fidgety and no snorting), saying it was a "great honor" to meet with the outgoing POTUS.
