Incumbent President Barack Obama, at a press briefing called at the White House today, made an official statement on Donald J. Trump winning the 2016 Presidential election.

“I had a chance to talk to President-elect Trump last night - about the 3.30 in the morning I think it was - to congratulate him on winning the election,” said President Obama.

“I had the chance to invite him to come to the White House tomorrow, to talk, about making sure there is a successful transition between our Presidencies.”

“Now, it is no secret, that the President elect and I have some pretty significant differences – but remember, eight years ago, President Bush and I had some pretty significant differences,” he said.
