good day. we're following events in washington this afternoon. president-elect donald trump at the white house meeting face-to-face with president obama. here's a picture we just got from that meeting, a symbolic moments in the process of handing orpower from one president to another. i'm joined by nbc's hallie jackson and kristen welker. do we know the substance of the meeting? >> reporter: we are getting some headlines. presidenobama sees this as a moment to set the tone for a smooth transition. he told trump today, we will do everything we can to help you succeed. i am told he wanted to answer questions, wanted to talk about some of the challenges between campaigning versus governing. the mood here among staffers is bleak. the president's message to them, it's time to move forward. >> and hallie, the
11:46 am
what sorts of decisions have to be made? >> mostly about his administration, the cabinet and what happens over the next six weeks prior to the inaugural. president-elect trump commented that this meeting lasted longer than scheduled, which is did. they talked about foreign and domestic policy and the president-elect says he's looking forward to more meetings with president obama. >> chuck todd is joining us now. do you think this meeting was as awkward as anticipated? >> yes. it is awkward. and did donald trump at least, you know, offer any sort of remorse on sort of some of the criticism, vice versa, was there any of that, i don't know. but that will be a curiosity. >> here is the tape now just a few minutes ago from the oval office. >> i just had an opportunity to have a conversation with president-elect trump.
11:47 am
organizational issues in setting up the white house. we talked about foreign policy, we talked about domestic policy and, as i said last night, my number one priority in the coming two months is to try to facilitate a transition that ensures our president-elect is successful. and i have been very by the, i think interests, in president-elect trump's wanting to work with my team around many of the issues that this great country faces and i believe that it is important for all of us, regardless of party and regardless of political preferences to now come
11:48 am
with the many challenges that we face. and in the meantime, michelle has had a chance to greet the incoming first lady and we had an excellent conversation with her as well and we want to make sure that they feel welcome as they prepare to make this transition. and most of all, i want to emphasize to you, mr. president-elect, that we now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed, then the country succeeds. please. >> well, thank you very much, president obama. this was a meeting that was going to last for maybe 10 or 15 minutes and we were just going to get to know each other. we had never met each other. i have great respect. the meeting lasted for almost an
11:49 am
have, as far as i'm concerned, it could have gone for a lot longer. we really -- we discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties. i very much look forward to dealing with the president in the future, including counsel. he explained some of the difficulties, some of the high-flying assets and some of the really great things so, mr. president, it was a great honor being with you and i look forward to being with you many, ny mor times in the future. >> thank you, sir. thank you, everybody. we are not going to be taking any questions. thank you, guys. thank you. >> it's always the last one z come on, guys. come on.
11:50 am
appreciate it. >> thank you, guys. >> don't know if you caught that, but president obama offering a few tips to president-elect trump about the press corps at the end of these photo ops but that occurred a few minutes ago and on tape the first face-to-face meeting as donald trump had pointed out that the two had never met, talking about policy issues and about a transition. let's go back now to nbc's chuck todd who is watching with us. chuck, the incoming president will be able to undo with a executive actions of president obama. do you think some of the discussion is don't do that or consider this before you do that? >> i think there was some of that and also the chief of staff denis mcdonough was showing around the organizational head of the trump campaign and will be involved in some form or another. but look, president obama on day one signed a slew of executive
11:51 am
that he could do that president bush put in and there will be that on president trump's first day. that's almost like a standard procedure from president to president, particularly when we change parties. but i'm guessing that a lot of this had to do with, look, the trump folks weren't preparing for this either, as you recall, lester. they were -- they didn't think they were going to be in this position so they are having to get up to speed pretty quickly on how to do a transition and in the post- presidential transition is more difficult and more important than ever, particularly seamlessness you need when it comes to this battle on dealing with domestic and foreign terrorism. >> back to kristen welker, you know the president has told his staff to get on board and move on with this transition. what does it mean practically? do trump folks start coming to the white house? are there face-to-face meetings?
11:52 am
transition? >> reporter: that's right. president-elect will start to receive intelligence briefings. they will be meeting with staffers here on a regular basis from now through the inauguration. you heard president obama talk about the fact that former president george w. bush really set the tone for a smooth transition and he wants to essentially do exactly what his predecessor did to make sure that this transition is seamless. i thought it was striking to hear donald trump talk about the iman from president obama, moving forward. remember, this is someone's who has never served in office before so president obama determined to make sure that this goes smoothly. lester? >> and chuck, very quickly, we've talked about things are personal between the two of them. no signs certainly in that photo op of personal, hard feelings. >> no. and president obama, this is a very genuine thing for him on the transition. because it was an extraordinarily smooth transition between george bush
11:53 am
barack obama's election was a full-fledge repudiation. president obama doesn't want to be accused of undermining the incoming administration so i think this is genuine. >> chuck, thank you very much. we know president-elect trump will have meetings with republican leadership on capitol hill later today. we'll have full coverage, of course, on "nbc nightly news."

my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear, and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis.
