Oprah: Seeing Trump With Obama ‘Gave Me Hope’

Yesterday, President-elect Donald Trump met with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office and the whole world watched. In spite of the fact that he spent the last eight years insulting the President, Trump admitted that they’d never met before that moment. He also said he had respect for him.

Oprah — whose choice to support Obama was controversial to some — seems like an unlikely source of optimism regarding that meeting and yet…

Seeing the President she loves and supports with Trump gave her “hope,” according to an Entertainment Tonight interview.

She advised everyone to take a deep breath and asserted, “To hear President-elect Trump say that he had respect for President Obama, it felt that he had reached a moment where he was actually humbled by that experience.”
