(TriceEdneyWire.com) – In his victory speech the morning after the Nov. 8 election, President-Elect Donald Trump called for America to come together and promised to be the president of all Americas – even those who did not support him.
Despite his vitriolic, pit bull style of campaigning that won the hearts of the Ku Klux Klan, he continued his new tone and demeanor in his first Oval Office meeting with President Barack Obama. Since the meeting, he has even conceded to keep some parts of the Affordable Health Care Act, known as Obama Care, and said he would not seek prosecution of his Democratic campaign rival Hillary Clinton because “I don’t want to hurt those people.” Even in his Thanksgiving message, he made a special mention of the “inner cities” to double down on his campaign promise to improve Black neighborhoods. Since the election, his staff has said he has spoken several times with President Obama, seeking a smooth transition.
