Obama in Letter Left for Trump: ‘Congratulations on a Remarkable Run’

In a letter to President Trump on inauguration day, former President Barack Obama congratulated the new leader on his “remarkable run.” The letter, which was obtained and published in full by CNN, is reportedly the “last direct communication” between Trump and Obama, according to the network. “Millions have placed their hopes in you, and all of us, regardless of party, should hope for expanded prosperity and security during your tenure,” Obama wrote, imparting four separate pieces of advice on the new president. Obama pledged that he and former first lady Michelle Obama would be willing to “help in any ways which we can.”
