Who would have ever thought of this on Monday 7/11/2016?




The most powerful man in America and the one Americans elected to replace him met at the White House this morning for more than 90 minutes in a public display of unity intended to help the country digest the shocking results of Tuesday's presidential election.
The two men had never met each other. President-elect Donald Trump said he intended for the getting-to-know-you meeting to last ten to 15 minutes but it went on much longer, delving into areas of policy.
He described sitting President Barack Obama as a 'very good' man when it was finished as a pack of reporters hurled questions.
'I very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel,' he said in a statement. 'He explained some of the difficulties some of the high flying assets, some of the really great things that have been achieved.'
Obama spoke first, telling reporters his top priority was 'ensure our president-elect is successful'.
'I have been very encouraged by… the interest in President Elect Trump's wanting to work with my team,' he said.
The president-elect and the first lady in waiting, Melania Trump, departed from LaGuardia airport in New York at 9.36am on his way to Washington on Thursday morning on his personal aircraft, a Boeing 757, emblazoned with his name. They arrived at Ronald Reagan National Airport just after 10.30am.
The future first couple entered the White House complex 20 minutes later via a back entrance through the South Lawn that is inaccessible to media.
Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, owner of the New York Observer and a senior adviser to the president-elect's campaign, was also in tow. Kushner was also seen in the Oval Office as Trump and Obama spoke to the media.

Now they must come together with him and prove to the country and the world that America is a shining example of a functioning democracy.
Today's meeting was expected to last an hour but it had not concluded at 12:30, the start time of Trump's next meeting, with Ryan.
Ryan says he wants to stay on as House Speaker despite his rocky relationship with Trump. The GOP leader endorsed Trump this summer before the nominating convention but rescinded his support after a video emerged of Trump saying he uses his celebrity to grab women by the genitals.
The White House said on Wednesday that the sitting president planned to press the president-elect not to take an ax to all of his key policies.
The current administration is especially concerned that Trump, who spent the campaign promising to repeal and Obamacare, will cancel millions of Americans' health insurance plans without a new mechanism in place.
The White House is also terrified that Trump will immediately round up and deport the illegal immigrant children they said could stay.

The president-elect has been unclear how quickly he'll move on that aspect of his agenda, though he says he will rescind the executive orders Obama issued saying they could remain in the country indefinitely.
Outside the White House Secret Service officers braced for the coming protests. Riot gear and gas masks were on hand in case the confrontations became violent.
Pennsylvania Avenue and the adjacent park were overcome by construction in preparation for the January inauguration. 
Workers were busy building wooden risers on Thursday morning for the massive number of journalists that will descend on Washington for the festivities. The bullet proof viewing box for the VIPs and members of the new and old administrations will soon be brought in as well.
Vice President-elect Mike Pence is also visiting the White House today for a 2.30pm meeting with the outgoing Vice President Joe Biden.
In a twist of irony, basketball player LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavilers, will also meet with the president today at the White House. 
James and his teammates are being honored for their NBA Championship. James appeared with Clinton at a rally in the final days of the race and encouraged his fans not to vote for Trump.
The high-profile meeting between Obama and his successor set the White House into a frenzy on Thursday. Staffers continued to mourn what could have been under a President Clinton as they turned their focus to the impending transition.

For the first time in eight years the country will have a new president on January 20, and he will come from the opposing political party.
In anticipation of a Clinton win, White House aides seemingly made no plans to hand over the keys Trump.
'There's no specific thing that I have in mind that we're going to do differently now,' White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said after he was asked by a reporter if the administration was building a 'firewall' to protect Obama-era policies. 'Our plan all along was to ensure the successful implementation of those and other priorities, and we're going to be committed to doing everything we can to ensure the success of those policies between now and January 20th.'
Trump has said he will dismantle the Democratic president's health care law, deport the 11 million illegal immigrants in the country, negotiate the 12-nation trade deal brokered by the Obama administration and remand the nuclear agreement with Iran.
Previewing the meeting today between the president and the president-elect, Earnest said Obama would talk to Trump 'about some of these policies and about some of the benefits of some of these policies.'
'The President-elect's team will have an opportunity to get briefed by the national security experts here in the Obama administration that have been working on implementing these policies. But, ultimately, the President-elect will be the person that is responsible for setting the path of foreign policy for the United States for the next four years,' Earnest said.
The anticipated show of civility at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue contrasted with post-election scenes of protests across a politically divided country. 
Demonstrators from New England to the heartland and the West Coast vented against the election winner on Wednesday, chanting 'Not my president,' burning a papier-mache Trump head, beating a Trump pinata and carrying signs that said 'Impeach Trump'. 
Republicans were emboldened by Trump's stunning victory over Hillary Clinton, giving the GOP control of the White House and both chambers of Congress.
'He just earned a mandate,' Ryan said.

Still, Clinton was gracious in defeat, declaring: 'Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.'
Trump was uncharacteristically quiet in the aftermath of his triumph and made no public appearances Wednesday. 
He huddled with jubilant, sleep-deprived advisers at his eponymous skyscraper in Manhattan, beginning the daunting task of setting up an administration that will take power in just over two months. 
He also met with Pence and took calls from supporters, family and friends, according to spokeswoman Hope Hicks.
In Washington, Trump's scant transition team sprang into action, culling through personnel lists for top jobs and working through handover plans for government agencies.

Trump was expected to consider several loyal supporters for top jobs, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for attorney general or national security adviser and campaign finance chairman Steve Mnuchin for Treasury secretary. 
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Tennessee Sen Bob Corker were also expected to be under consideration for foreign policy posts.
As president-elect, Trump is entitled to get the same daily intelligence briefing as Obama - one that includes information on US covert operations, information gleaned about world leaders and other data gathered by America's 17 intelligence agencies.

The White House said it would organize two exercises involving multiple agencies to help Trump's team learn how to respond to major domestic incidents.
If Trump makes good on his campaign promises, the nation stands on the brink of sweeping change in domestic and foreign policy. 
He's pledged to repeal Obama's health care law and pull out of the landmark nuclear accord with Iran. He's vowed to build a wall along the US-Mexico border and temporarily ban immigration from nations with terror ties.
It's unclear whether Trump will embrace many of the traditions of the presidency. 
He'll enter the White House owning his own private jet as well as a hotel just blocks away on Pennsylvania Avenue. He never allowed journalists to fly on his plane during the campaign, as is customary for White House nominees.
Issues of transparency bubbled up right from the start. On Wednesday evening, Trump aides said they would not bring the press corps to Washington with the president-elect for his meeting with Obama, breaking long-standing protocol.
