Obama welcomed Trump in the White House
BBC – President Barack Obama is hosting his successor Donald Trump at the White House for what could prove to be awkward transition talks.
The Republican president-elect has questioned Mr Obama’s US citizenship and vowed to dismantle his legacy.
During the campaign, Mr Obama called Mr Trump “uniquely unqualified”, but now says he is “rooting” for him after his shock defeat of Hillary Clinton.
Thousands have taken to the streets of major US cities denouncing Mr Trump.
White House spokesman Josh Earnest has insisted Mr Obama is sincere about ensuring a smooth handover when he meets Mr Trump, though he added: “I’m not saying it’s going to be an easy meeting.”
Mr Trump flew from New York on his private jet and landed at Reagan National Airport, just outside the nation’s capital.
