Oprah: Trump, Obama Joint Appearance ‘Gave Me Hope’ — ‘Everybody Can Take a Deep Breath Now’

In an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Oprah Winfrey, who endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for president back in June, said seeing President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump together on Thursday gave her “hope” and that everyone could take “a deep breath” given Obama had “renewed confidence.”

“I just saw the two of them together – I just President-elect Trump with President Obama in the White House and it gave me hope,” Winfrey said. “It gave me hope, I have to say – to hear President-elect Trump say that he had respect for President Obama, it felt that he had reached a moment where he was actually humbled by that experience. To hear President Obama say that he has renewed confidence in the peaceful transition – I think everybody can take a deep breath. Everybody can take a deep breath now.”
