Some people have no shame. …
Like Barack Obama and the entirety of the Washington D.C. political establishment—these people will wish someone well in public, and then work tirelessly behind the scenes to destroy that same person.
No other feud captures the malicious spirit of D.C. more than the deep state war against President Trump. …
The letter, while seemingly cordial and amorous on its face, couldn’t have been more divorced from the reality that Democrats and Obama engendered against the 45th President of the United States.
Here’s President Trump discussing the ‘fake’ letter:

In 2017, CNN wrote this fluff piece on Obama’s letter to Trump:
The words reveal a conciliatory outgoing commander in chief with four items of advice for his successor, whose fitness for the job he’d spent the previous months openly questioning.
“Congratulations on a remarkable run,” Obama wrote in his opening line.
“Millions have placed their hopes in you, and all of us, regardless of party, should hope for expanded prosperity and security during your tenure.”
Written out longhand on White House stationery and slipped into the top drawer of the Resolute Desk, the 275-word letter captures an outgoing president eager to instill in Trump the vast responsibilities and uncertain parameters of the job.
Wow! Reading through Trump’s new book!
Two especially interesting/historical letters that have stood out to me so far…

Trending Politics adds:
Trump added that he and President Obama got along well during the transition but that he “felt so differently about things” than his predecessor did.
