The letter, part of a tradition of outgoing presidents leaving notes behind for their successor, is one that Biden described as “very generous” in 2021.

He stopped short of providing details about the letter at the time, adding that it was private and he wouldn’t talk about it until he spoke to Trump.

Trump, months after Biden’s inauguration, told Lisa Boothe that he wished Biden luck in a letter that came “from the heart.”

Jen Psaki, a former press secretary for the Biden White House, told Rob Lowe last year that the president took in the letter for himself after discovering it.

“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,” Psaki said.

She continued: “It was long, it was very long. Bob Woodward and Robert Costa wrote in their book “Peril” that Biden, who found the Trump letter to be “shockingly gracious,” put the letter in his pocket and didn’t share it with his advisers after he discovered it.
