President-elect Donald Trump and President Barack Obama spoke for about 45 minutes on Saturday — the day it was announced that Cuban leader Fidel Castro had died.

Word of the private discussion comes from top Trump aide Kellyanne Conway.

She’s not saying what the two discussed, but she says the two men “talk regularly” and “get along nicely” despite strong disagreements on policy.

Conway tells NBC’s “Meet the Press” that “there’s a respect there.”

Conway won’t say what Trump might do after he becomes president with regard to U.S.-Cuban relations.
