WASHINGTON, November 10. /TASS/. US President Barack Obama has told reporters that he had a wide-ranging conversation with president-elect Donald Trump. Talking to reporters after the Oval office meeting that lasted longer than scheduled, Obama stated that he had had an "excellent conversation" with Trump on both domestic and foreign policy.
"We talked about some of the organizational issues in setting up the White House. We talked about foreign policy, we talked about domestic policy," Obama noted.
He once again pointed to his efforts to "facilitate a transition that ensures our president elect is successful." "And I have been very encouraged by the I think interest in president elect Trump’s wanting to work with my team around many of the issues that this great country faces," the incumbent US president added.
According to Obama, "it is important for all of us regardless of party and regardless of political preferences to now come together, work together, to deal with the many challenges that we face."
