U.S. President Elect Donald Trump reversed his position on Barack Obama blocking his transition into the White House.
Immediately after being elected into the office of the U.S. President, sitting president Barack Obama and Trump met and talked. Trump, at that point, believed that the transition into his White House was going very smoothly. Recently, however, both Obama and Trump have seemed to spar verbally over foreign policy. Trump seemed to disagree with the Obama administration decision to abstain from a United Nations Security Council vote on Israeli settlements in Palestine. Obama seemed to take a jab at Trump and xenophobia at the 75th Anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
"Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks," tweeted President Elect Trump of President Obama. "Thought it was going to be a smooth transition - NOT!"
President Elect Trump had a change of tune on Wednesday, however, after a conversation with President Obama.
"[We] had a good talk about things. He was in Hawaii. It was a very nice call and I actually thought we covered a lot of territory," continued Trump. "Our staffs are getting along very well. And I'm getting along very well with him, other than a couple of statements that I responded to and we talked about it and smiled about it. And nobody is ever going to know because we're never going to be going against each other in that way. It was a great conversation."
