"Mr. President, it was a great honor being with you and I look forward to being with you many, many more times," Trump told Obama at the end of their remarks.

Of course, the two powerhouses have a longstanding rivalry.

Even during an address at the White House on Wednesday, Obama conceded: "It is no secret that the president-elect and I have some pretty significant differences, but I am rooting for his success in uniting and leading the country."
