President Joe Biden has spoken about the letter his predecessor Donald Trump left for him before leaving the White House on Wednesday.
Biden revealed that the letter was “very generous”.
The President gave the description while speaking from the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office after signing Day One executive orders.
According to him, he would not immediately reveal the contents out of respect for Trump.
“The President wrote a very generous letter. Because it was private, I will not talk about it until I talk to him, but it was generous”, he told reporters.
It is a modern tradition for outgoing presidents to drop a letter for their successors.
While speaking to the CNN, a senior Trump aide said the “personal note” prayed for the success of the new administration to care for the country.
The aide disclosed that the letter was one of the items on Trump’s list in the Oval Office Tuesday night.
Jen Psaki, the White House press secretary, refused to provide an insight during his chat with the media Wednesday night.
“This is a letter that was private. As he said to you all, it was both generous and gracious, and it was just a reflection of him not planning to release the letter unilaterally”, Psaki said.
In 2017, Trump described Barack Obama’s letter as “long, complex, and thoughtful”.
