Donald Trump was elected President of the United States on Tuesday and despite the hundreds of thousands of Americans who are heartbroken and troubled by the election outcome, our current president, Barack Obama, is extending love in the wake of Trump’s triumph.
In a statement released by The White House press secretary, Obama has extended an invite for the president-elect to join him for a meeting at The White House.
The meeting, however, is not just to shoot the breeze and take a tour, rather, to “update” Trump on the transition planning that the president’s team “has been working on for nearly a year.”
Per the release, Obama, who supported democratic candidate Hillary Clinton throughout her entire campaign, also congratulated the 70-year-old real estate developer-turned-reality television star on becoming the 45th president of the United States.
We have to note that Obama putting personal issues aside is big and admirable, considering Trump is the man who criticized Obama at every turn — calling him a “terrible president” and suggesting he will “probably go down as the worst president in the history of our country, he’s been a total disaster.”
According to The White House press secretary, the meeting could take place as early as Thursday, November 10.
After a long, exhausting and polarizing election season, Trump came out on top, pulling in 276 electoral votes to Clinton’s 218.
During his victory speech, Trump suggested “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.”
He explained, “Now it’s time for America to bind the wounds of division. It is time for us to come together as one united people. It’s time.” That’s when he added that it “is so important to me.”
The question is: Will we bind the wounds of division?
Meanwhile, Obama, who has yet to publicly react to the shocking election outcome, is set to make a full statement sometime on Wednesday.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
