President Obama To Lunch With His Former Opponent
The presidential election is over, and apparently there’s no hard feelings between the winner and loser. President Obama has invited Mitt Romney to lunch at the White House tomorrow, and the former governor accepted.
Here are the details according to the Huffington Post:
“President Barack Obama will host his former political rival Mitt Romney for a private lunch at the White House Thursday, their first meeting since the election.
Obama promised in his victory speech earlier this month to engage with Romney following their bitter campaign and consider the Republican’s ideas.
Obama aides said they reached out to Romney’s team shortly before Thanksgiving to start working on a date for the meeting. The two men will meet in the White House’s private dining room, with no press coverage expected.”
