The First Lady sat down with President-elect Donald Trump‘s daughter for a meeting prior to Inauguration Day, which will take place on January 20.
“Melania‘s spent time with Michelle, which was great, and Ivanka the other day spoke to her,” Trump said during an interview with Fox & Friends (via Us Weekly). “The conversation was going to be a quick conversation. It lasted an hour. And they got along great.”
While Ivanka has yet to be given a specific title in the White House, she is expected to have an active role in the administration, likely performing a lot of the duties normally given to the First Lady, according to CNN.
President Barack Obama just gave his last press conference as the President of the United States, and some of his final thoughts were spent gushing about his daughters, Sasha, 15, and Malia, 18.
When speaking about Sasha and Malia‘s reaction to Donald Trump winning the election, he said, “They were disappointed…[but] they do not mope.”
“What makes me proudest about them…they have no assumed that because their side did not win…that automatically America has somehow rejected them or their values. I don’t think they feel that way,” the POTUS said.
“If you’re engaged and you’re involved, then there are a lot more good people than bad in this country. There is a core decency in this country,” he said.
The First Lady of the United States is celebrating her birthday today, and President Obama just sent his wife a very sweet birthday message. Along with the President, celebs and fans have also been sending the FLOTUS well wishes!
The Obamas will be enjoying their final days in the White House, as President-elect Donald Trump is set to be sworn into office this coming Friday (January 20).

The President of the United States saved remarks for his family for the end of the address, which was delivered on Tuesday night (January 10) in Chicago, Ill.
“Michelle – for the past 25 years, you’ve been not only my wife and mother of my children, but my best friend,” Obama said. “You took on a role you didn’t ask for and made it your own with grace and grit and style and good humor. You made the White House a place that belongs to everybody. And a new generation sets its sights higher because it has you as a role model. You’ve made me proud. You’ve made the country proud.”
“Malia and Sasha, under the strangest of circumstances, you have become two amazing young women, smart and beautiful, but more importantly, kind and thoughtful and full of passion. You wore the burden of years in the spotlight so easily. Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud to be your dad,” he added about his daughters.
