Former President Donald Trump revealed that he left a “couple page” letter in the Oval Office for Joe Biden. He says he wrote the letter “from the heart” because he wants to see Joe do a good job.
“Basically, I wish him luck,” Trump told Lisa Boothe during an interview for her 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.”
When Biden took office, there was a letter waiting for him on the Resolute Desk. “The president wrote a very generous letter,” he said at the time. “Because it was private, I won't talk about it until I talk to him. But it was generous.”
Biden declined to specify what the letter said, and stated that he would wait until he spoke with Trump before he revealed its contents. However, it’s unclear when the last the two men spoke. It was likely the last presidential debate in October 2020.
When Boothe asked Trump what he wrote, the former POTUS replied that he did not want to say. “That’s, you know, perhaps up to him and I guess he wouldn’t do it without my approval.”

Daily Mail reports:
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.
In the nearly 60 minute podcast interview, Trump reiterated many of his old complains: his false claim he won the 2020 election, that he was a victim of a 'witch hunt' from special counsel Robert Mueller, and complaining about Republicans - including his own Vice President Mike Pence - who did not support his effort to illegally overturn the election result.
Trump also claimed he never conceded to Biden.
“Look he's there. It was a rigged election election, you know, I would never concede,” Trump said.
He added that even though he wishes Biden well, his immigration policies are terrible and not finishing the border wall is a mistake.
“You could finish it in a month,” Trump added.
On the 1,954 mile U.S.-Mexico border, the Trump administration built 452 miles of wall, according to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) information.
But only 80 miles of new wall had been built. The vast majority of what the Trump administration built replaced already existing barriers built in previous administrations.
Trump also repeated his charge 'dangerous criminals' are coming through the border.
'You have some really bad ones coming, really dangerous criminals coming up, and we're allowing them to come right into our country. It's insane. And it's nothing compared to what it's going to be over the coming months,' he said.
Trump's criticism comes as the Biden administration struggles to deal with the situation at the border.
