When Donald Trump says he has a ‘good’ relationship with President Barack Obama, the press corps is on edge

Washington — — President Donald Trump has taken to Twitter to announce that he has “a good” relationship with Barack Obama and that the two leaders are “on the same page” on many issues.

Trump made the announcement Thursday, and it comes after days of speculation about how the two presidents will communicate and what they may discuss in private.

The president tweeted that Obama has “always been a strong supporter of the American people,” while he also made clear that Trump has “strong confidence” in his ability to lead the country and said that Obama will continue to lead his country.

The two leaders have had a rocky relationship.

Obama, in a statement, said in a video released by his campaign that Trump had “repeatedly and falsely claimed that he was not a natural born citizen.”
