    US President-elect Donald Trump said on Wednesday that he had a really good chemistry with the outgoing US President Barack Obama.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — On November 10, Obama and Trump held a meeting in the White House soon after the presidential election.

    "I've now got to know President Obama, I really like him. I can say at least for myself, I can't speak for him, but we have a really good chemistry together," Trump said in an interview with the NBC broadcaster.

    On November 8, Trump secured the 306 electoral votes required to win the White House. The Electoral College is due to vote on December 19. The inauguration of the US president-elect will take place on January 20.
