Barack Obama invited Trump to meet with him at the White House on Thursday to update him on the transition, the statement said.

“Ensuring a smooth transition of power is one of the top priorities the President identified at the beginning of the year and a meeting with the President-elect is the next step,” the statement said.

Obama will make a statement at the White House later Wednesday on the election results and speak about “what steps we can take as a country to come together after this hard-fought election season.”

Obama, who publicly called Trump “unfit” for the Oval Office, campaigned aggressively for Hillary Clinton in the weeks leading up to Election Day to keep the former reality show star from being his successor.

“The choice you face when you step into that voting booth could not be more clear or could not be more serious,” Obama said in Philadelphia on Monday.
