In a letter sent to former President Donald Trump in the 1980s, Richard Nixon predicted that the country’s 45th chief executive would win if he ever decided to run for public office.
Trump published the letter, dated December 21, 1987, on Truth Social on Sunday night.
The 37th president of the United States wrote in the letter that his wife, former First Lady Pat Nixon, was impressed by the then-real estate magnate after watching his interview on “The Phil Donahue Show.”
“I did not see the program, but Mrs. Nixon told me that you were great on the Donahue Show,” Nixon wrote.
He added, “As you can imagine, she is an expert on politics and she predicts that whenever you decide to run for office you will be a winner!”
Trump stated that the Nixon letter, along with many other influential figures, will be included in his forthcoming book “LETTERS TO TRUMP.”
“My new book is almost here!” Trump commented. “In 1987, President Richard Nixon wrote to me, that when I decide to run for office I will be victorious.”
He teased, “Read this letter, and many, many more in LETTERS TO TRUMP!”
The former president also provided a link to the official website for the book.
The book is described as a “colorful photo book” which “captures the incredible, and oftentimes private correspondence, between President Donald J. Trump and some of the biggest names in history throughout the past 40 years!”
It will contain additional Nixon letters as well as Trump’s personal correspondence with Princess Diana, Hillary Clinton, Kim Jong Un, and others.
Throughout the 1980s, Trump and Nixon were pen friends, according to the Associated Press.
