President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump spoke just moments ago at the White House following their meeting on the transfer of power.

Trump said the sit-down was supposed to be 10 or 15 minutes, but lasted an hour and a half and could have gone on much longer. 

"We discussed a lot of different situations, some wonderful and some difficulties," said Trump. 

Trump said he looks forward to the president's "counsel" and dealing with him in the future. 

"It was a great honor being with you," Trump concluded.

Obama called it a "wide-ranging" discussion that included "organizational issues" like setting up the White House and foreign and domestic policy issues. 

He said he's encouraged by Trump's interest in wanting to work with his team on the many issues at hand. 

"We now are going to want to do everything we can to help you succeed because if you succeed, then the country succeeds," said Obama, adding that Michelle Obama and Melania Trump had an "excellent conversation."

They ended the appearance by shaking hands. Reporters shouted questions at the two men, but Obama said they would not be answering any at this time.

The president joked to Trump that it's a "good rule" not to answer the shouted questions from reporters.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said there were no staffers in the room during the Oval Office meeting. 

He said Obama and Trump "did not resolve all their differences" but were not trying to do that at the meeting.

Earnest also said he would not rule out more meetings taking place, but that none are scheduled.
