The new U.S. President Joe Biden talked about a message from his predecessor Donald Trump.
According to him, the previous head of the White House left a “generous” letter. However, Biden preferred not to disclose the contents of the message, because, according to him, it is a letter of a personal nature. However, Biden added, he might reveal the details later, after a private conversation with Trump.
It was reported Jan. 20 that Trump had fulfilled at least one of the presidential tradition of handing over power to a successor by leaving a letter to his successor in the Oval Office. At the time, the White House also declined to disclose the text of the letter.
Earlier, it became known that Biden in the first hour in the White House canceled a number of decisions of his predecessor in office Donald Trump, signing the relevant decrees. In particular, he signed decrees on the return of the U.S. to the World Health Organization and the Paris climate agreement. In addition, he ordered a halt to the construction of the wall on the border with Mexico and the lifting of restrictions on entry from a number of Muslim countries.
Biden was inaugurated Jan. 20 as the 46th president of the United States. Outgoing Vice President Mike Pence attended the ceremony. Trump ignored the ceremony, breaking a 150-year tradition, and left Washington a few hours before the festivities. He left the capital for his residence at Mar-a-Lago in Florida. Before doing so, he said goodbye to his supporters and promised to return “in one form or another.”
