Obama meets new US President while ‘Riot’ like protests across the US against Trump rising

"I respect democracy only if my candidate is selected"...

Some Americans are destroying America’s social fabric to prove that President-elect Donald Trump will destroy the United States. Learning quickly from their few Indian counterpart who were showing such exorcism elements after the Loksabha results came out in India in May 2014.

After their first meeting sans the must discussed and boisterous #USElection2016, President Elect Donald Trump tweeted- “A fantastic day in D.C. Met with President Obama for first time. Really good meeting, great chemistry. Melania liked Mrs. O a lot!”

Trump expressed his feeling of ‘great chemistry’ with President Obama, who, during the campaign, told Trump to "stop whining."

In a campaign mood, Obama also described Trump as: "Demeaning women, degrading women, but also minorities, immigrants, people of other faiths, mocking the disabled, insulting our troops, insulting our veterans —that tells you a couple of things. That tells you that he's insecure enough that he pumps himself up by putting other people down, not a character trait that I would advise for someone in the Oval Office."

But the situation changed and it was time for Obama to greet the same Trump in his Oval office. President-elect Donald Trump got a sombre welcome at the White House. The meeting between president-elect Trump and President Barack Obama went on for a 90-minutes in the Oval Office.

On the other hand, Michelle Obama welcomes incoming first lady Melania Trump.

Obama said the two men discussed “foreign and domestic policy” and how to ensure the handover of power went smoothly. “I want to emphasise to you, Mr President-elect, that we now are going to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed, then the country succeeds,” Obama told his successor during a brief photo opportunity afterwards.

But the background of this uneasy meeting was equally noisy.

Hundreds of angry protesters descended upon the midtown Manhattan skyscraper carrying signs that read “Not My President” and “Divided States of America.”

Thousands of protesters filled the streets of cities across the U.S. Thursday for the second night of anti-Donald Trump demonstrations, with police in Portland, Oregon, declaring protests there had escalated and were being “considered a riot.”

 “Due to extensive criminal and dangerous behaviour, protest is now considered a riot. The crowd has been advised,” tweeted the Portland Police Department, which pointed the finger at “anarchists.”

 

Trump, in his candid manner, reacted to that terming it "Unfair'. 

"Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!", tweets the President Elect.
