President-elect Donald Trump says he has had “good chemistry” with both President Obama and Mitt Romney — two men he had criticized during the 2016 campaign.

“He’s been very gracious; he’s been very nice,” Mr. Trump said of Mr. Obama. “We’ve had a couple of great calls and meetings, and I very much respect his attitude. He’s been very, very nice.”

Mr. Trump, in an interview that aired on Fox News Friday, also said Mr. Romney has been “very gracious.”

“Don’t forget — I hit Mitt pretty hard also, I mean, before the fact,” he said. “And so I understand how it all works.”

Mr. Trump and Mr. Romney, who is under consideration for secretary of state, had dinner the other night.

“There was actually good chemistry,” Mr. Trump said. “Really good chemistry with him and also with President Obama. … We were supposed to sit down for 10 minutes and we ended up sitting down for about an hour and a half, keeping everybody waiting.”

“But we had a great talk,” he said.
