Obama, Trump hold historic meeting

trumpxandxobamaPresident-elect Donald Trump called President Barack Obama a very fine man as the two long-time antagonists met in the Oval Office in a ritual epitomizing the peaceful transfer of power.

Obama told reporters that if Trump succeeds, America succeeds at a White House meeting that encapsulated the stunning political events of the last few days since the President-elect’s remarkable election victory.
Trump said he would seek Obama’s counsel as president and Obama promised his full cooperation in the transition period.
The President-elect’s first visit to Washington as the President-elect began around 10:30 a.m. when the plane emblazoned with his last name landed at Reagan National Airport, marking a new beginning for America.
Trump is also scheduled to meet with House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell while in town. He is traveling with Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who will meet Vice President Joe Biden.

    Obama’s speeches are normally flawless, On this occasion he trying not to make things too complicated for the clueless President Elect he has to make the statement as simple as possible. His facial expression is priceless. As for Trump his body language speaks volumes, lack of confidence and NO experience of what the position holds. Now he wants to work with Obama the same man that he said is not AMERICAN.

    Truth be told if the history of the island is checked, Barbados and the wider Caribbean have benefited more with a Republican administration in the White House. I am not going to make this easy, go do the research.

    The Barbados Labour Party could learn a thing or two from President Obama’s graciousness.

    He is a real Gentleman not like the riff raff in the Barbados Labour Party.

    President Obama is, indeed, a real gentleman. I will miss him very much. He’s every bit the nickname he was given “no drama Obama” , the nickname that tied the republicans in knots. History will show him to be a class act while the Republicans remain the thugs they are. 4 really tough years comin’up for us.
