Just over two months after former President Donald Trump left the White House, the reality TV star turned politician is finally revealing the contents of the letter he left for current President Joe Biden. Trump’s admission of the details of the letter come as quite a shock, seeing as the one-term president refused to accept the results of the election — scratch that, still refuses to accept the results of the election, as made evident by his continuous claims of voter fraud and how the election was “rigged” months after it was proven that there was no fraud in the 2020 election (via ABC and AP News).
On top of the consistent and inaccurate spread of lies related to the election, Trump refused to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration, which not only left a deeper orange stain on the former Apprentice star’s political career, but also solidified the fact that it’s basically impossible for Trump to accept defeat or loss of any kind. “Donald Trump’s brand is about being a winner, about never, ever losing,” Mara Liasson said on NPR’s All Things Considered in November 2020. “Remember, he’s always come out of every loss, like his bankruptcies or failed businesses, somehow making himself look like a winner. This election is the biggest, most public loss he’s ever suffered. So the stakes for his political future and his ability to continue to monetize his brand are very high.”
In his letter to Biden, Trump maintained that the election was rigged, but wished him luck
In an episode of the podcast The Truth with Lisa Boothe on Monday, March 22, Trump revealed the details of the lengthy letter he wrote Joe Biden, which he insists was “from the heart,” although he took some jabs at both Biden and Hillary Clinton because, well, he’s Donald Trump. “Basically I wish him luck and, you know, it was a couple of pages long and it was from the heart because I want to see him do well,” Trump said. “Look, he’s there. It was a rigged election, an election that you know, I would never concede and by the way, Hillary Clinton said he should never concede. Hillary Clinton, the things she said were so horrible” (via New York Post).
“But you know what, he’s there, and I want him to do well, but that doesn’t include closing up the Keystone Pipeline, which by the way, environmentally is much better than having them on trains, but his friend and supporter Warren Buffett has trains. Nobody ever talks about that,” he rambled, before doubling down on the fact that he believes Joe Biden and his family were “bought and paid for” by China.
Joe Biden has yet to publicly release Trump’s letter to him, but called it “very generous” in January (via New York Post).
