It's American tradition for presidents to leave a letter for the next elected leader before they move out of the Oval Office, and Barack Obama did just that.
During the first interview inside the White House, Donald Trump acknowledged the letter our former POTUS left for him, and apparently, it was really, really "beautiful."
Like, so "beautiful."
While speaking with ABC's David Muir, Trump held the letter in his hands and spent a few minutes raving about how "thoughtful" it was, without actually stating any direct lines from the note.
I won't show it you, read it to you, but a -- just a beautiful letter.
Of course, the beautiful letter sparked Muir's curiosity and he asked if there were any lines that stood out to the Donald upon reading it.
There were numerous lines, so well written, so thoughtful -- so thoughtful. [...] I doubt too many of them were written in this manner. It was long, it was complex, it was thoughtful and it took time to do it and I appreciated it.
That letter was so beautiful and thoughtful that Trump even called Obama to thank him "for the thought that was put into that."
Hm... I wonder if Barack answered that call. If I was lounging on a tropical island, I'd certainly hit the "Ignore" button -- but that's just me.
OK, OK... let's get to the juicy part, aka a summarized line from the letter that Trump admired most.
Apparently, Obama said something "very interesting" to the new POTUS regarding healthcare.
He said, 'You know if I thought your healthcare plan was going to be better than his plan, Obamacare, then I would support it,' and I believe he would.
Um... well, maybe? I guess Obama has no choice but to abide by it, but I suppose he'd support it too if it was that good of a healthcare plan. (Let's hope it is, for our sake.)
Oh, one more thing Trump enthusiastically claims the letter stated was that Obama hopes he does a "great job."
Yes, Donald. For the sake of America, we ALL hope you do a "great job."
