President Barrack Obama has said on Wednesday that he will ensure a smooth transition of power to President-elect, Donald Trump.
Earlier, Obama had called Trump to congratulate him on his victory and invited him to meet at the White House on Thursday.
During his speech at the White House, the United States President said the differences between Trump and him will not affect the transfer of power.
“It is no secret that the president-elect and I have some pretty significant differences. But remember that eight years ago, President Bush and I had some pretty significant differences..
“The presidency and vice presidency is bigger than any of us.
“We are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading this country. The peaceful transfer of power is one of the hallmarks of our democracy.”
