The Obamas shook hands, embraced and had small talk with their successors about 10 a.m. “Mr. President-elect, how are you?” Barack Obama asked Trump. “Good to see you. Congratulations.”

 

“How was church?” Obama later asked Trump.

 

Melania handed Michelle Obama a gift and the four posed for a photo before Barack Obama led the group into the White House.

 

Donald Trump will be sworn in as President of the United States later Friday during an official inauguration ceremony.
