Furthermore, she cited it traditional for outgoing presidents to leave a note for their successor.

However, she said contents of the note remain just between Trump and Biden.

Notably, Trump has broke a century and a half tradition of every outgoing president attending the inauguration of their successor.

But he kept with the now 32-year tradition of the departing commander in chief writing a note to the incoming president.

As he left the White House in January 1989 after two terms in office, President Ronald Reagan started that tradition.

He left a note for his successor, George H.W. Bush, who also had remained his vice president.

Four years later, despite losing to then-Gov. Bill Clinton of Arkansas in a bitterly contested election, outgoing President Bush left Clinton a note in the Oval Office.

Succeeding presidents carried on the tradition to this day.

Separately, a White House official tells FOX Business’ Blake Berman that outgoing Vice President Mike Pence also left his successor, incoming Vice President Kamala Harris, a handwritten note.

And Pence, the head of the Trump adminisration’s Coronavirus Task Force, left Biden and Harris a report from the task force.

Meanwhile, outgoing Trump White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany also tweeted a picture of notes she left for Biden communications staffers.
