"I have been very encouraged by the interest in President-elect Trump's wanting to work with my team around numerous issues that this great country faces", he said.
Mr Obama, in a post-election ritual meant to signal the peaceful transition of power, vowed to do all he could to ensure Mr Trump would be well-positioned to run the country.
Earnest said during the visit to Trump's future home, the two moms discussed raising children in the White House.
Obama offered to do everything he can to help the NY businessman succeed when he takes office on January 20 and urged the country to unite to face its challenges.

"I know we have still not shattered that highest and hardest glass ceiling but someone will and hopefully sooner than we might think right now". And we are now talking about how we're going to hit the ground running to make sure that we can get this country turned around and make America great again. Reporters were not allowed to witness Trump's historic entry into the White House for the first time since his stunning surprise election win on Tuesday. Like Clinton and other Democrats, Obama didn't appear to see Trump's victory coming.
The White House says Obama called Trump from his residence in the White House early Wednesday to congratulate him.
Later, Trump will go to Capitol Hill to talk with congressional leaders about the Republicans' legislative agenda for next year.
Obama also called Clinton after it became clear she'd lost the race.
"I could not be prouder of her".
Clinton was gracious and warm in her concession speech, urging her supporters to "look to the future" of what has been a bitter campaign and said Trump deserved a fair shot at the leadership. He had also warned supporters in apocalyptic terms that "the fate of the republic" rested on Clinton defeating Trump on Election Day.
