    Donald Trump talks "regularly" with President Barack Obama and "very much enjoys" their conversations, a top Trump aide said Sunday.

    Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press," Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said Trump's consulted the president on his Cuba policy and the two spoke this weekend.

    "He's even been talking to President Obama. You know, beyond the sit-down they had 30 hours or so after President-elect Trump won the election, they've been talking regularly on any number of issues. They talked just yesterday," she said.

    The latest conversation went on about 40-45 minutes, she said, though she wouldn't offer details on what was discussed. But the two "get along nicely," Conway added, despite their differences.
