Earnest: ‘Obama Came Away from the Meeting with Renewed Confidence in the President-Elect’

‘That obviously is what president Obama believes, serves the American people the best’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:
REPORTER: "Did the president leave the meeting any more reassured that president-elect trump will not try to dismantle all of the work that you and your colleagues have done over the last eight years and did President Obama make any pitch to trump, for instance, not to get rid of ObamaCare or any significant policies?"
EARNEST: "I'm not going to get into all of the details of their meeting. I think that President Obama came away from the meeting with renewed confidence in the commitment of the president-elect to engage in an effective smooth transition. That obviously is what president Obama believes, serves the American people the best. We're committed to doing what's is required on our part to make sure that that happens and the president was pleased to hear a similar commitment expressed by the president-elect."
