Barack Obama's Parting Letter To President Donald Trump Revealed
Barack Obama left a letter to Donald Trump to welcome him to the White House and offer his advice from his time as president. The letter has finally been revealed!

On Inauguration Day, Obama left his successor with "a few reflections from the past 8 years," broken down into four points, before extending an offer to assist in any way needed.

Obama wrote, "First, we've both been blessed, in different ways, with great good fortune. Not everyone is so lucky. It's up to us to do everything we can (to) build more ladders of success for every child and family that's willing to work hard."

The 44th president stated that the leadership in the United States was "indispensable" in the world.

"It's up to us, through action and example, to sustain the international order that's expanded steadily since the end of the Cold War, and upon which our own wealth and safety depend," Obama wrote.

Obama reminded Trump they are both "just temporary occupants of this office" and that the strength of the U.S. will be on Trump's shoulders. 

"That makes us guardians of those democratic institutions and traditions — like rule of law, separation of powers, equal protection and civil liberties — that our forebears fought and bled for," Obama wrote. "Regardless of the push and pull of daily politics, it's up to us to leave those instruments of our democracy at least as strong as we found them."

Obama also encouraged Trump to make certain to spend time with friends and family, who would help him get through "the inevitable rough patches" of the presidency.

Happy Anniversary. 💕

"Michelle and I wish you and Melania the very best as you embark on this great adventure, and know that we stand ready to help in any ways which we can," Obama concluded. "Good luck and Godspeed."

At that time, Trump stated, "I just went to the Oval Office and found this beautiful letter from President Obama. It was really very nice of him to do that and we will cherish that. We will keep that. And we won't even tell the press what's in that letter."
