President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump.

The differences between President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama are dramatic. Not only are their policy beliefs on opposite ends, their public personas bear almost no resemblance to each other.

But they both won elections to put them in the White House.

To talk about that Dan Pfeiffer, Obama’s former senior advisor, joined The Show. He is co-host of Pod Save America and author of "Yes We (Still) Can: Politics in the Age of Obama, Twitter and Trump."
