    US President Barack Obama will welcome President-elect Donald Trump in the Oval Office on Thursday morning.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The meeting will take place at 11 a.m., according to the White House daily schedule.

    Obama said earlier on Wednesday that he had congratulated Trump on winning the presidential election and would meet him on November 10 to discuss a peaceful transition of power.

    On Wednesday, Trump won the US presidential elections despite most of the analysts and opinion polls predicting his defeat to Democratic Party nominee Hillary Clinton. Trump secured more than 270 Electoral College votes required to win.
