President Barack Obama has congratulated President-elect Donald Trump, winner of the US presidential election.

He spoke to Trump on phone Wednesday morning to congratulate him on his victory, the White House said in a statement.

Obama also invited Trump to meet with him at the White House on Thursday to update him on the transition.

“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.

He will also speak about “what steps we can take as a country to come together after this hard-fought election season”, the statement added.
