During part two of his interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly on Monday, Donald Trump insisted former President Barack Obama “likes” him, telling the host he “can feel it.”
“You know what was fascinating, to watch you at the Inauguration with Barack Obama,” O’Reilly said to Trump. “You guys seem to get along.”
“It’s a very strange phenomenon, we get along,” Trump insisted. “I don’t know if he’ll admit this, but he likes me. I like him.”
“How do you know he likes you,” O’Reilly asked.
“I can feel it,” the prescient Trump replied. “That’s what I do in life, it’s called like, ‘I understand.’”
“We had a rough campaign,” he continued. “He was vicious during the campaign toward me, and I was vicious toward him. We said horrible things to each other, and then we hop into the car and we drive down Pennsylvania Avenue together, we don’t even talk about it.”
“Politics is amazing,” the President of the United States added. Trump then teased that he and Obama discussed what our “biggest problem is,” refusing to tell O’Reilly what that problem is.
“We had a great, it was a great inauguration,” Trump said, circling back to his budding friendship with the former president, whom he spent years trying to delegitimize with claims he was born in Kenya and therefore ineligible to be president. “I loved every minute of it, and I got along with him. In fact, people were sort of surprised, I finished,I turned around he was smiling, I was smiling.”
“It was fascinating,” O’Reilly concurred.

During a panel discussion on Donald Trump's call for an investigation of Joe Biden's son Hunter over his Ukraine dealings, an "AM Joy" guest said if Congress is going to investigate politician's kids why not start with Ivanka Trump and her brothers Don Jr. and Eric.
Speaking with MSNBC host Joy Reid, Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan called out President Donald Trump for his "brazenness" going after the former vice president's son.
"There's so much to say about this story, as for the Ukrainian denials, what are they going to do, come out and say, 'Yes, Donald Trump did pressure our president eight times in a single phone call'? It's absurd." Hasan began.
Lindsey Graham drives bus over Trump kids to get to Biden: ‘You can’t investigate one family and not the other’
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggested on Sunday that the children of both President Donald Trump and Joe Biden should be investigated.
While speaking to Fox News host Maria Bartiromo, Graham was asked if he is calling for an investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son over dealings in the Ukraine. President Donald Trump allegedly also asked Ukraine's president for help with the Bidens.
"Yeah, I want the Department of Justice to appoint somebody to look at the role the Ukraine played if any in the 2016 elections," Graham told Bartiromo. "There are a lot of allegations out there how Ukraine fed information maybe to the Democrats."
Entire CNN panel beats down Santorum for Ukraine misinformation: ‘You don’t get to decide what the facts are’
Conservative CNN contributor Rick Santorum was called out on Sunday after he seemed to be uneducated about President Donald Trump's attempt to have Ukraine investigate Joe Biden and his son.
During a panel discussion on CNN, Republican contributor Mia Love said that Trump's communication with Ukraine was not "appropriate" if he was looking for campaign help.
"There is no equivalence between Joe Biden and Hunter Biden and what this president has allegedly done," Democratic consultant Karen Finney noted. "The things that were investigated against the Bidens [were] shelved, totally debunked."
