(WVUE) -

President Barack Obama is set to welcome his successor, Donald Trump, to the White House, extending an olive branch to the man whom he blasted as unfit to serve as commander in chief and who led the charge to challenge the legitimacy of Obama's own presidency.

Thursday's Oval Office meeting is the symbolic start of the transition of power from Obama, a Democrat who ushered in a sweeping health care law and brokered a landmark nuclear accord with Iran, and Trump, a Republican who has promised to wipe away those initiatives. Trump takes office on Jan. 20.
