Washington DC: President-elect Donald Trump has arrived at the White House to discuss the transition with President Barack Obama.

Trump arrived in Washington after flying from New York aboard his private jet.

The meeting comes after Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton in Tuesday's election. It symbolically begins the transition of power from Obama, a Democrat, to Republican Trump.

While Trump and Obama meet in the Oval Office, first lady Michelle Obama and Trump's wife, Melania, are to meet privately in the White House residence.
