Former U.S. President Donald Trump (Trump) left a letter to Biden at the White House when he left office, which Biden said was in the “private domain” and did not reveal the contents of the letter to the outside world. Trump recently gave an interview to the media, revealing some of the contents of the letter.
On March 22, Trump was interviewed by Fox News host Lisa Boothe. In a podcast interview with Lisa Boothe, Trump talked about a letter he left for Biden before leaving office.
Trump revealed some of the contents of the letter. He said, “Basically I wished him luck and, you know, it was a couple of pages long and it was written from the heart because I wanted to see him do well.”
Trump said, “I wish him well, but that doesn’t include shutting down the Keystone (oil pipeline), which (Keystone pipeline), by the way, is much better than transporting Crude Oil by train. But Biden’s friend and supporter Warren Buffett (Warren Buffett), who has been a member of the U.S. House of Representatives for more than a decade, is a big fan of the idea. Warren Buffett (Warren Buffett) has trains. No one ever talks about it.”
Trump left a letter for Biden as he left the White House on the morning of Jan. 20, which would normally be placed on the Resolute Desk in the White House Oval Office. The Resolute Desk, a gift from Queen Victoria, is a desk made in the 19th century and has been used as a desk by U.S. presidents on several occasions.
After Biden officially moved into the White House that day, he announced to the public that Trump had left him a “very kind” letter, but he did not give any details of the letter, only emphasizing that it belonged to the “private domain”.
Biden said, “Because it [the letter] is private, I won’t talk about it [its contents] until I talk to him [Trump].”
Meanwhile, Biden signed 17 executive orders in one breath in the Oval Office, which run counter to policies and decisions previously made by the Trump Administration.
The tradition of outgoing U.S. presidents writing letters to incoming presidents reportedly began with former President Reagan, and the letters sometimes read more like messages, some humorous, some encouraging, some exhorting, and some with a conciliatory tone.
Trump also received a letter from outgoing President Barack Obama on the day of his inauguration in 2017, which Trump called a “beautiful letter.
Former first lady Melania also reportedly left a “welcome note” for Jill Biden, Biden’s wife, when she left the White House on Jan. 20. But the contents were never made public.
Trump also mentioned Twitter in the interview. During the election, Twitter permanently canceled Trump’s account, and then Facebook, YouTube and other social media also blocked Trump’s account.
Trump said he felt good without Twitter. He said it’s now better and better received by making a statement than by tweeting.
Miller, a senior adviser to Trump, told Fox News on March 21 that President Trump is creating his own social media platform and will likely return to social media in about two or three months.
Miller said he could not provide details or a possible name for the new social media business at this Time, but he revealed that Trump has been having “high-level power meetings” with various teams in this venture at Mar-a-Lago, Florida, and that “numerous companies ” are already reaching out to Trump.
Miller said, “This new platform is going to get huge.” He expects Trump to attract “tens of millions of people. Trump had nearly 90 million followers before his account was permanently canceled by Twitter.
