Trump meets Obama

In a move which signals change in stand a day after Donald Trump elected as President of the United States, his campaign has removed a statement appearing on his website to ban all Muslims from the United States.

The page link to that statement on putting in place a temporary or even a complete ban on Muslims has been removed, The Independent reported Thursday.

The page now redirects to his a page encouraging voters to donate to his campaign.

The page was available on the morning of the election day, November 8, according to online caches. But the redirected was added later the same night.

Trump was widely condemned for his call shortly after the terrorist attacks in Paris in November 2015 to temporarily ban all Muslims from the country.

He and his allies have consistently defended the ban, insisting the measure was about the safety of the Americans and not about discriminating against another religion.

Videos and speeches defending the ban remain on the Trump campaign website.

It is not the first time the Trump team has scrubbed pages from its websites.

After speculation rose that Melania Trump did not complete her university degree, her biography page was taken down and started to redirect to Trump's golf course.

Meanwhile, Trump reached the White House on Thursday to meet President Barack Obama.

Trump's first visit to Washington as the President-elect began around 10.30 a.m. when the plane emblazoned with his last name landed at Reagan National Airport, reported CNN.

During his visit, Trump is also scheduled to meet with senior Republican leaders including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence, who is accompanying him, will meet Vice President Joe Biden.

Trump and Obama had frequently attacked each other for years, but in the aftermath of the election results where Trump beat Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton convincingly, Obama acknowledged Trump's victory, and stressed ensuring a peaceful transition of power.
