Trump Speaks About Letter He Left For Biden


OPINION: This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion



It is not a secret that Donald Trump and Joe Biden do not see eye to eye on near anything, but there are some things that cross boundaries.

Among them is the tradition of a president who is leaving the White House leaving a letter for his successor, and Trump did just that, The Daily Mail reported.

“Basically I wish him luck,” the 45th president said in an interview with for Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe’s podcast.

He said the letter was a “couple of pages long and it was from the heart because I want to see him do well.”

Trump did not participate in many of the traditions of an outgoing president because of the contentious nature of the 2020 presidential election, but this was one he felt was necessary.

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 is the last time the two men 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. 

Biden acknowledged the letter on Inauguration Day but said that he would keep the details private until he talked to Trump.

“The president wrote a very generous letter,” he said to reporters at the White House. “Because it was private, I won’t talk about it until I talk to him. But it was generous.”

But Trump is definitely not a fan of what Biden has been doing, along with the Democrat Congress, since he entered the White House.

That is why he has endorsed a litany of Republican candidates to take back the House and Senate and stop Biden’s liberal agenda.

But that is not all he has done. In an email to supporters on Monday, Trump endorsed Jody Hice to be the new secretary of state in Georgia, after his feud with current Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger.

“Wow, just heard the good news. One of our most outstanding Congressmen, Jody Hice, has announced he is running for Secretary of State in the Great State of Georgia. Jody has been a steadfast fighter for conservative Georgia values and is a staunch ally of the America First agenda. Unlike the current Georgia Secretary of State, Jody leads out front with integrity. I have 100% confidence in Jody to fight for Free, Fair, and Secure Elections in Georgia, in line with our beloved U.S. Constitution. Jody will stop the Fraud and get honesty into our Elections! Jody loves the people of Georgia, and has my Complete and Total Endorsement,” he said.

“All I want to do is this: I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, because we won the state,” Trump said when he talked to Raffensperger.

Raffensperger told Trump that “We have to stand by our numbers,” and that “We believe our numbers are right.”

But Raffensperger must be frightened of the challenge from Hice as he tore into him in a scathing response to the announcement of his candidacy.

“Few have done more to cynically undermine faith in our election than Jody Hice,” he said. “Georgia Republicans seeking a candidate who’s accomplished nothing now have one.”
