Thanks to ABC we now know what Obama put in the letter he left for incoming President Trump as he made his way out of the White House.
Trump talked about the letter Obama left for him in the drawer of the Oval Office calling the letter “beautiful.”
“I won’t show it to you or read it to you, but it’s just a beautiful letter,” President Trump said.
“There were numerous lines that struck me most.
“So well written. So thoughtful. So thoughtful.”
It has become a tradition that every departing president to leave a letter for the new president.
Reporters caught him on camera, and it was clear that Obama left the white envelope in the drawer. Touching moment.
The White House didn’t reveal anything about the content of the letter Obama wrote for Trump.
Obama stood for Hillary during the presidential campaign. But, he talked with Trump in several occasions, and offered his advice. Hillary could’ve used this friendship, but no, she went down the hill.
“It was in the drawer, which is a custom, but I doubt too many of them were written in this manner,” the President revealed.
“In fact I called him and thanked him for the thought that was put into that letter.”
“It was long, it was complex, it was thoughtful, and it took time to do it and I appreciated it.

None of the words written in the letter surprised our President, and he said that “it was stated beautifully that I’m representing a lot of people”.
“And I’m carrying on a very important tradition and just ‘do a great job’.
“He wants me to do a great job.”
“He said something that was very interesting to me.”
“He said ‘you know if I thought your health care plan was going to be better than his plan, Obamacare, I would support it’.
“And I believe he would.”
What do you think about Obama’s final words? Do you think he was honest?
