Trump Says He Had ‘Good Talk’ With Obama After Blasting Him for Disrupting ‘Smooth Transition’

By Alexander Mallin, Good Morning America:

President-elect Donald Trump said he had a “nice conversation” with President Barack Obama Wednesday following a string of tweets in which he went so far as to suggest that the sitting president was disrupting the smooth transition of power.

“He phoned me, we had a very nice conversation,” Trump told reporters today outside his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida. “We had a general conversation.”

Later this evening, Trump stepped out again, this time with Don King by his side, and emphasized that he had a “good talk” with Obama. “I actually thought we covered a lot of good territory,” he said.

Trump also said he will hold a press conference in early January. The president-elect has not held a full press conference since the election.

Tweeting earlier in the day from the Mar-a-Lago, where he’s spending the holidays with his family, Trump wrote, “Doing my best to disregard the many inflammatory President O statements and roadblocks. Thought it was going to be a smooth transition – NOT!”

Trump’s tweet followed an interview in which Obama claimed that he would have won with his message of hope if he had faced off against Trump in the 2016 election.
