Because Donald Trump was elected president, he now has to begin the process of taking over the Oval Office from President Obama. As tradition has it, the President and First Lady must meet with the President Elect and his wife. That means that the Trumps met with the Obamas, and things couldn’t have gone worse…
During the proceedings, Melania demonstrated her respect for tradition and wore designer clothes and shoes to the meeting. Meanwhile, Michelle Obama, who is enraged that Hillary Clinton lost, refused to appear on camera during the meeting. That means we will never know what happened during the event.
Was Michelle Obama cordial? Or did she say anything rude to the woman about to take her place? Learn more below…
According to Daily Mail Online, Melania Trump arrived at the White House wearing a double-breasted black coat, a black shirt, and black Christian Louboutin pumps, apparently in the color of mourning.
She was prepared for her meeting with First Lady Michelle Obama and Jill Biden, the Vice President’s wife.
Reports indicate that Michelle was so upset that Trump is taking over for her husband, that she didn’t want to be on camera and even canceled the official photoshoot.
The customary photo-op with both the President and First Lady and the President Elect and his wife has been canceled.
The Wall Street Journal reported: “The Obamas canceled a photo-op of the current and future first couples outside the south entrance of the White House. In his first visit to the White House after the 2008 election, Mr. Obama and first lady Michelle Obama posed for the cameras alongside President George W. Bush and first lady Laura Bush. The decision not to participate in this tradition illustrates how bitter the campaign was, particularly for Mrs. Obama who delivered some of the most emotional arguments against electing Mr. Trump.”
After the 2008 election, the Bushes posed with the Obamas as per tradition. But in an election where a reality television star and accused sex offender won the White House, it seems the rules have been thrown out the window.
In the video below, you can see President Obama talking about his meeting with President Elect Trump.
Trump said he will lean on President Obama’s counsel during his time in office since he has no experience.
Trump admitted his “great respect” for the man he has called “the worst president in the history of the United States” and his need for Obama’s “counsel.”
Since winning the election, Trump’s searing tone has been subdued. The establishment is already quieting him and many of his insane promises to his base of white voters seems to have disappeared.
Listen to Obama and Trump agree on how to handle the future of America and “now come together and work together and deal with the many challenges we face.”
Trump said, “We had never met each other. I have great respect. The meeting lasted for almost an hour and a half and as far as I’m concerned it could have gone on for a lot longer.”
Trump has already changed his tune and is friends with Obama now.
“You’re a good man,” Trump said to Obama. “You’re a good man.”
