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.

Meghan Markle may have left USA’s Suits after seven seasons, but the actress’ likeness will be making it’s way back to a TV very soon. Lifetime has announced that it’s planning a film based on Markle and her soon to be husband, Prince Harry’s whirlwind romance.

The cable network, known for it’s biopics, made the announcement on Sunday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour.

“And before the wedding of the year takes place between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Lifetime will debut a movie revealing how the stars aligned for this royal romance,” said Lifetime’s head of programming Liz Gateley.

Harry & Meghan: The Royal Love Story  (working title) will trace Prince Harry and Markle’s relationship from the day they met to the overwhelming media attention surrounding their eventual engagement, which was announced in November. It will also touch on their courtship after they were set up by mutual friends and depict Markle’s life as a divorced American actress.

Menhaj Huda, who helmed an episode of E!’s fictional Royal Family series The Royals is on hand to direct. Casting is currently underway.

No official date has been announced, but given Lifetime’s track record, fans should expect the movie to release a few days before the couples May 19 wedding. Back in 2011, Lifetime aired William & Kate: The Movie just days before the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge married on April 29.
