In a recent interview on “Meet the Press,” which aired on Sunday, September 17, 2023, former President Donald Trump said he left President Joe Biden a note at the White House when he left office.
President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were sworn into office in the White House on January 20, 2021 after replacing Trump whose tenure as the 45th president of the United States came to an end having been inaugurated on January 20, 2017.
Kristen Welker asked Trump:
“I don’t think you’ve ever gotten this question. But it’s been reported that you left a note for President Biden when you left office,” Welker said. “Can you give us a little sense of what you said?”
Which Trump replied to, saying. “It was a nice note,” Trump said, according to THE HILL.
“I took a lot of time thinking about it. I’d love him to do a great job, even if it was very bad politically for me.”
Trump’s claim that he left Biden a note has been met with skepticism by some observers, who note that Trump has a history of making false or misleading statements. However, Trump’s former chief of staff, Mark Meadows, has confirmed that Trump did leave a note for Biden.
The contents of the note remain unknown, but Trump has said that it was “a very generous letter.” Biden has also said that the note was “very generous,” but he has declined to reveal its contents.
Upon entering the White House, Biden preferred not to disclose the details of the message from Trump because it was private.
Some experts have speculated that the note may have contained advice for Biden on how to be president. Others have speculated that the note may have been a personal message from Trump to Biden.
It is also possible that the note was simply a farewell note from Trump to Biden. Whatever the case may be, the contents of the note are likely to remain a mystery for some time to come.
It is worth noting that there is no precedent for a president leaving a note for their successor. However, Trump has a history of breaking with tradition, so it is not surprising that he would choose to do so in this case.
The fact that Trump left Biden a note is a sign that he is not completely indifferent to Biden’s success. Trump has repeatedly criticized Biden since he left office, but he has also said that he wants Biden to do a good job.
It is also worth noting that Trump has said that he would like to run for president again in 2024. If he does run, Trump’s success in the 2024 election will likely depend in part on how Biden performs in office.
In conclusion, the fact that Trump left Biden a note is a significant development. It is a sign that Trump is not completely indifferent to Biden’s success, and it is a sign that Trump is thinking about the 2024 election. The contents of the note remain unknown, but they are likely to be of great interest to both historians and political scientists.
