Obama talked about the awkward exchange during an interview on The Ellen Show.

“Everyone cleared out and no one would come and take the box. I’m thinking, do we take the picture with [it]? Then my husband saved the day. He grabbed the box and took it back inside.”
But what did Trump give Obama as a gift? Well according to the former First Lady, Trump gave her a “lovely frame”—presumably of the photo variety.
