It was a day for the history books in Washington, D.C., as President-Elect Donald Trump flew here to begin the process of a transition by meeting with President Obama at the White House, later sitting down with Republican leaders in Congress who will have the responsibility of shepherding his agenda through the House and Senate.
“We’re looking at jobs, big league jobs,” Trump said to a phalanx of reporters waiting for him outside the Senate chamber in the U.S. Capitol.
Earlier, in a photo opportunity with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Trump predicted a good relationship with GOP leaders, as he promised “spectacular things” during his administration.

At the Capitol, Trump met both with Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell; Ryan took him back into his offices, and out on to the balcony, which looks not only down the National Mall, but right out on where the Inaugural platform will be on January 20, 2017.
