During his first press appearance in the Oval Office Tuesday evening, President Joe Biden was asked about the contents of a letter from President Trump, which was left for him in the Resolute Desk.
"The President wrote a very generous letter. Because it was private I won't talk about it until I talk to him but it was generous," Biden said.

During remarks at Andrews Air Force Base earlier in the day, Trump wished the new administration well.
"I wish the new administration great luck and great success. I think they'll have great success. They have the foundation to do something really spectacular," Trump said.
Biden spent his first moments in office signing a number of executive orders rolling back a series of policies and executive orders implemented by President Trump.
