President Barack Obama is hosting his successor Donald Trump at the White House for what could prove to be awkward transition talks, - BBC reported

The Republican president-elect has questioned Mr Obama's US citizenship and vowed to dismantle his legacy.

During the campaign Mr Obama called Mr Trump "uniquely unqualified", but now says he is "rooting" for him after his shock defeat of Hillary Clinton.

Thousands have taken to the streets of major US cities denouncing Mr Trump.

He flew from New York on his private jet and landed at Reagan National Airport, just outside the nation's capital.

The two men are expected to appear together for the cameras in the Oval Office after a behind-closed-doors meeting.

The president-elect is being accompanied by his wife, Melania, who will have a meeting with First Lady Michelle Obama.

On Wednesday, Mr Obama - who campaigned against Mr Trump - urged all Americans to accept the result of the presidential election.

"We are now all rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country," he said.

The defeated Mrs Clinton also told supporters Mr Trump had to be given a "chance to lead".

Despite their calls, protesters gathered in several cities across the country on Wednesday. Many chanted: "Not my president."
