WASHINGTON - An apparent rapport is brewing between President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump that few, if any, saw coming.

A few months ago they were trading insults. Today it's telephone calls and pleasantries.

Apparently membership in one of the world's most exclusive clubs - the club of U.S. presidents - has a way of changing things.

Trump talked Wednesday about letting bygones be bygones, telling NBC's "Today" show about their "really good chemistry" and how much he likes the president.

Obama has been less effusive in his comments about Trump since the election. But he has repeatedly urged the public and world leaders concerned about a Trump presidency to adopt a "wait-and-see" approach, arguing that the reality of holding office will lead Trump to alter his thinking in some cases.
