Obama and Trump struck a conciliatory pose in brief remarks after the meeting, their first face-to-face conversation after years of doing long-distance political battle. Trump visited the White House Thursday for his first ever meeting with President Obama. Mr Pence meant to join both meetings. The two families skipped a photo op of Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, arriving at the White House.
On Tuesday night, Trump said that he had received a call from his opponent, Hillary Clinton. We would be talking about a Clinton win and the first female to be elected president but the third party voters showed up in droves, whether to legitimately vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein, to voice their displeasure with Trump and Clinton or perhaps to just not vote for either of the two out of spite, it still contributed to a Trump win.
The heated rhetoric witnessed between Obama and Trump during the presidential campaign did not spill over into the meeting, the spokesman said . President Obama was the first president to use social media in his job - it didn't really exist before he came into power eight years ago.
Muslim shrines have often been targeted by militant groups, many of whom adhere to a strict interpretation of Islam that regards veneration of saints at shrines such as Shah Noorani as heresy.

A doctor at an area hospital told a local television station that the number of wounded being brought in had overwhelmed the hospital's capacity.
While their husbands were getting acquainted, First Lady Michelle Obama met soon-to-be successor Melania Trump while Vice President Joe Biden held West Wing talks with Trump's running mate Mike Pence .

The deal follows extensive negotiations over the fate of those processed in the two detention centres, re-opened by the former Gillard government. Mr Turnbull has kept tight-lipped on speculation of a deal with the U.S., but on Friday Cabinet Minister Christopher Pyne spoke of how such a deal could yet be completed before Donald Trump's inauguration.
Turnbull would not say exactly how many refugees would be resettled in the United States, but said women, children and families would be prioritized. The Manus Island Regional Processing Facility is seen in 2012. "The approach taken by Australia in transferring refugees and asylum-seekers to open-ended detention in Papua New Guinea and Nauru has caused vast harm to vulnerable people who have sought asylum since 2013", the UNHCR said in a statement.
The agreement is a one-off that will be available only to refugees now in processing centers, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said in Canberra on Sunday. Operation Sovereign Borders statistics released by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection show there were 872 people in the Manus Island processing centre and 390 people in the Nauru centre as of October 31.

The White House had lobbied hard for months in the hope of moving forward on the pact if the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, had won. The document said withdrawing from the massive free trade agreement with Japan and ten other Pacific Rim nations would be done within the first 100 days of a Trump administration.
According to Paul Larudee, a former USA government adviser, this invitation indicates that Washington will continue to receive orders from the Tel Aviv regime.

America's European allies have also expressed concern about Trump and his campaign's apparent ties to Russian Federation, which they fear could imperial the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance now that he's been elected. Obama administration officials have blamed Russian hackers, possibly with high-level intelligence links, for infiltrating the email account of Clinton's campaign chief, John Podesta.
