President Joe Biden has not revealed what Donald Trump wrote to him in a two-page letter as the two passed in the hallway going opposite directions. Perhaps the letter read, “Joe, you know I won,” but it’s doubtful. There’s still a cordial side to the former president.
When Trump was recently asked about the content of the letter he said it was “from the heart.” Though he wouldn’t share any explicit details he did offer some insight. “Well I don’t want to say, you know that’s perhaps up to him and I guess he said he wouldn’t do it without my approval.”
“But basically I wished 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.” Trumps’ assessment coincides with Biden’s remarks when he was quizzed.
All Biden would say was, “The president wrote a very generous letter. Because it was private, I won’t talk about it until I talk to him. But it was generous.” So neither one of them will reveal the contents of the letter before speaking privately with the other one. Don’t hold your breath. You’ll die.
White House press secretary Jennifer Psaki is blue in the face from telling reporters, “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.”
Unless Biden has torn it up or flushed it, the letter will eventually find its way into the National Archives and Records Administration where it will be made public in keeping with The Presidential Records Act. But for now, Joe Biden has no plans of giving Donald Trump a ‘ringy-dingy.’
Once through with the customary niceties, Trump did an about-face. This is what he then said to Fox News host Lisa Boothe during the podcast the two were on. “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.”
Trump continued with, “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.”
So we know the letter was polite and cordial from what both of the men are saying but was it really? Two full pages of saying, “Best of luck to ya?” Come on, does this like the Donald Trump we know and admire? A guy who refuses to surrender? No answer needed.
Even if the letter was packed full of gushy elaborate words encouraging Joey to pursue his caviar dreams, Biden certainly wouldn’t want that made public. It would destroy the image of the monster he portrayed Trump to be, and this would in turn lessen his own credibility.
Trump has been openly critical of Biden refusing to allow the media to enter southern border facilities when he was letting them go in. What’s he hiding? Trump has also given him what for concerning his lack of press conferences and transparency. And don’t even get him started on China, trade agreements, or any of his other accomplishments that the Biden administration is reversing or destroying.
The first few lines of Trumps’ letter to Biden probably were polite, just as Trump said. But can you just imagine his temperature rising as he wrote the rest of it? Melania probably had to tell him to stop and just go on to bed.
So for now we’re forced to continue speculating. Raise your hand if you think the letter isn’t quite as sweet and sappy as it’s being made out to be. Or better yet. If you were in Donald Trumps’ shoes, which would be difficult to impossible to fill, what would you have written to Biden?
