White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki’s recent revelations about a letter former President Donald Trump left for President Joe Biden are tantalizing but leave people wanting more.
Psaki disclosed the information on Friday during an interview with Rob Lowe for his podcast, “Literally! With Rob Lowe.”
Psaki noted she was the person who first informed Biden that, according to tradition, the outgoing President left a letter for him.
“On my first day before I did my first briefing, I was in the Oval Office talking with him about the briefing and anything he wanted me to convey or what I expected or whatever. And I said, ‘You know, I think you’re going to be asked about the letter that the former president left you,’ and he said, ‘Oh, did he leave me a letter?'”
“And I was like, am I telling him he was left a letter? I don’t know, OK?” Psaki continued. “So I said, ‘I think so. I think, I think that’s what happened. So he kind of looked around for the letter and read the letter while I was sitting there, which was just kind of a remarkable moment.”
According to Mediaite, Biden described the letter’s content as “generous” but would not disclose further details.
Psaki recalled to Lowe:
“[President Biden] didn’t read it out loud. He read it to himself. And he is such a classy guy, whether people agree with his politics or not, that he didn’t even convey it to us in that moment of what the letter said, he kind of read the letter, consumed it himself.”
Psaki also noted that Trump’s penmanship was “lovely,” and his letter was “very long.”
The length and positive tone of the letter are notable given the strong negative feeling associated with the election.
The Western Journal suggests: “Perhaps he isn’t the unprofessional buffoon the media have made him out to be. Perhaps he’s a competent leader who is willing to…show respect [for the office and] to…those he disagrees with the most.”
