US President Donald Trump left a letter to his successor, Joe Biden, in the Oval Office. Reported by the Associated Press with reference to the White House.
Thus, Trump fulfilled at least one of the presidential traditions associated with the transfer of powers to a successor. The White House refused to disclose the contents of the note.
Trump previously refused to attend Biden's inauguration ceremony, breaking a 150-year-old tradition, and left Washington hours before the celebrations. Instead, outgoing Vice President Mike Pence will attend the event.
Trump has already arrived in Florida and headed to his Mar-a-Lago residence. The media reported that the politician intends to keep some White House employees in his subordination even after the end of his term in office. It was noted that Trump's neighbors in Florida oppose his move to Mar-a-Lago for permanent residence and are trying to prevent this.
