Barack Obama called Donald
Trump, his newly-elected suc-
cessor, yesterday to congratulate
him on his victory and invited
him to the White House for talks
Obama also called Hillary Clin-
ton, his onetime secretary of state
and fellow Democrat, to express
his "admiration for the strong cam-
paign she waged throughout the
country," White House spokesman
Josh Earnest said in a statement.
At the White House, Obama---
whose own 2008 campaign to
make history as the country s first
black president hinged on unifying
a divided country---plans to discuss
"what steps we can take as a coun-
try to come together after this
hard-fought election season,"
During their talks today, Obama
and Trump---who once spearhead-
ed the so-called birther movement
questioning the president s place
of birth and legitimacy to be pres-
ident---are set to discuss the pres-
"Ensuring a smooth transition
of power is one of the top priorities
the president identified at the
beginning of the year and a meet-
ing with the president-elect is the
next step," added Earnest. (AFP)

OTTAWA---Predictions of an Amer-
ican exodus under a Donald Trump
presidency were largely viewed as
tongue in cheek during the campaign.
Canadians greeted the prospect of
American refugees with their typical
quirky humour, eagerly touting the
country s healthcare system, poutine,
maple syrup and "the good side of the
But as it became clear late Tuesday
that Trump was on a sure path to the
White House, interest in moving to
Canada spiked and crashed the coun-
try s immigration website.
"I think it s an emotional reaction.
I don t know if they ll follow through,"
Ottawa immigration lawyer Julie Taub
told AFP yesterday, hours after Trump
was declared the president-elect.
"It s unlikely that a flood of Amer-
icans would arrive at the border seeking
However, Taub and other immigra-
tion lawyers said they received several
inquiries from Americans as they
arrived at the office in the morning.
Over the past year, Canadian real
estate agencies and regions with sparse
populations used the US election to
launch marketing campaigns to attract
"Move to beautiful Nunavut," said a
Twitter message yesterday, hyping the
Arctic territory s pristine environment
and "10 months of winter each year."
The island of Cape Breton in Nova
Scotia on Canada s east coast welcomed
Americans under the slogan, "Cape
Breton if Donald Trump wins."
It offered jobs and cheap homes just
250 miles from the US border.

essary to be eligible for Canadian res-
Access to the site became progres-
sively slower as Trump picked up key
states, before finally displaying an error
message at 11 pm Tuesday when Trump
clinched the swing state of Florida.
Canada takes in about 300,000
immigrants and refugees annually.
Several US celebrities have pledged
to move north if Trump prevailed over
Clinton, including "Breaking Bad" actor
Bryan Cranston who said he would
pack up an RV and drive to Vancou-
"I would definitely move," he said
ahead of the result. "It wouldn t be a
vacation; I d be an expatriate."
Singers Cher and Barbra Streisand,
and Lena Dunham, star of the TV series
"Girls," made similar promises.
On this side of the border, mean-
while, Trump s win led to a flurry of
social media posts calling in jest for a
wall to be built along the Canada-US
border to keep out Americans, taking
a cue from Trump who campaigned
on building a wall along its southern
border with Mexico.
Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre said
he would send the bill for the wall to
