President Trump says he has earned former President Barack Obama’s respect, adding they have buried the hatchet after last year’s contentious campaign, The Hill reports.
“It’s a very strange phenomenon,” he said on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday. “We get along. I don’t know if he’ll admit this, but he likes me.”
“I like him because I can feel it,” Trump added of his predecessor, who leveled hash criticism against the businessman during the campaign. “That’s what I do in life – it’s called like, I understand.”
“Now we had a rough campaign [and] he was fighting better for Hillary than she did. He was vicious during the campaign toward me, and I was vicious toward him.
“We said horrible things about each other and then we hop in the car and we drive down Pennsylvania Avenue together [and] we don’t even talk about it. Politics is amazing.”
