In a Fox News interview, Trump claims they 'get along' and have completely moved past their issues.
On Monday, Fox News broadcast an interview with Bill O’Reilly and President Donald Trump that’s receiving a hard side-eye from left-wing critics. The confusion comes from Trump’s claims about his relationship with former President Barack Obama. When asked about the status with his predecessor, Trumps claims they “get along.”
“I don’t know if he’ll admit this, but he likes me,” Trump said of Obama. “I can feel it. That’s what I do in life, it’s called… like, I understand.”
He also addressed whether they’ve moved on from past digs made at one another. “We said horrible things about each other, and then we hop into the car [on Inauguration Day] and we drive down Pennsylvania Avenue together and we don’t even talk about it… Politics is amazing,” Trump continued.

Funny that Trump seems to breeze past his racist birther claims that became the basis of their issues, which the rest of us have not moved on from.
Trump then proceeded to gloss over what really happened during his call with Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto.
“I did talk to him about it,” Trump said about building a wall on the U.S./Mexico border. “I want to help him with it. We’ve got to stop drugs from coming into our country and if he can’t handle it –and maybe they can or maybe they can’t or maybe he needs help.”
“I’m going to put another F in the name NAFTA,” he said. “Because right now it’s free trade and I’m going to have it ‘fair trade’ also, because it’s not fair. We’re losing $60 billion a year in trade deficits with Mexico. Can’t do that.”
We have a feeling Trump’s happy relationship with Obama is about as likely as Mexico paying for that wall.
