Biden receives an unlikely letter from his predecessor, Donald Trump.
President Biden held a brief photo opportunity in the Oval Office, during which he confirmed that Trump wrote him “a very generous” letter. However, Biden has decided to keep the contents of the letter “private” until he has a chance to speak with the former president himself.
On his first day in the Oval Office, Biden signed three executive actions: one ordering a mask mandate on federal property, another providing “support for underserved communities,” and the third was to “rejoin the Paris Climate Accord.”
“I thought, ‘There’s no time to wait. Get to work immediately,’” Biden reported, adding, “There’s no time to start like today.” He sat at the desk wearing a mask as he spoke.
