On Thursday, President Obama and Donald Trump met face to face for the first time ever to discuss the president-elect's transition into the White House. The meeting was civil, despite the fact that the two have a long history of insulting and antagonizing one another-- Obama went as far as to say their conversation was "excellent". Over the course of the 90 minutes, Obama and president-elect Donald Trump discussed everything from "organizational issues" to foreign and domestic policy. The conversation was initially scheduled for 15 minutes, but lasted near an hour and a half. Trump told reporters, "I have great respect, the meeting lasted almost an hour and a half, and it could've, as far as I'm concerned, it could've gone on for a lot longer." President Obama, who will officially hold office until January 20th, (Inauguration Day
), made it clear that his intention for the next two months is to facilitate Trump's transition into the White House. But despite Obama, Trump, and Hillary Clinton's pleas for "unity", a number of protestors have taken to the streets over the past two days, claiming Trump is "not [their] president."
