Trump's Letter to Biden 'Was From the Heart Because I Want to See Him Do Well'

Donald Trump said he left a 'couple page' letter for President Joe Biden in the Oval Office on Inauguration Day written 'the heart,' as he bashed his successor's policies on the border.

'Basically I wish him luck,' he said in an interview with Lisa Boothe for her podcast.

It's a tradition for an outgoing president to leave a letter for his successor but there were questions as to whether Trump would do so, given the contentious election between him and Biden.

But there was a letter waiting for Biden on the Resolute Desk when he entered the Oval Office on January 20th.

'The president wrote a very generous letter,' Biden said at the time. 'Because it was private, I won't talk about it until I talk to him. But it was generous.'

Trump said it was a 'couple of pages long and it was from the heart because I want to see him do well.'

He declined to say specifically what he wrote. Biden has said he would not reveal the letter's content until he talked with Trump but it's unclear when it was the two men [last spoke. It's believed to have been the last presidential debate in October 2020.

'I don't want to say,' Trump said when Boothe asked him what he wrote. 'That's, you know, perhaps up to him and I guess he said he wouldn't do it without my approval.'

The letter will eventually become public - all notes outgoing presidents leave for their successors become archived under The Presidential Records Act and go to the National Archives and Records Administration.
