There is a tradition in the White House – from outgoing president to new president: the presidential letter. Here is a photo of the folder containing the letter from Bush to Obama.
Obama has begun working on two drafts – one for The Donald and a second for Hillary. You might find this hard to believe, but I have obtained copies of each.
I congratulate you again on your victory, and offer the following as thoughts to consider as the new president and commander-in-chief:
First, I suggest you read Roger Stone’s book, “The Man Who Killed Kennedy.” There are others of a similar vein, in case this one doesn’t properly adjust your thinking.
In order to understand US foreign policy, read the speech given by H. J. Mackinder to the Royal Geographical Society in London, January 25, 1904. If you think you do not want to follow this policy, read again the book by Roger Stone.
In order to understand US economic policy, read “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man” by John Perkins. Understand that the people you meet from the banking industry – major money center banks, international institutions like the IMF and World Bank, central bankers – are merely front-men for the real money power. Despite this, you should not take their recommendations lightly. If you think you do not want to follow this policy, read again the book by Roger Stone.
Finally, the plane is very nice.
Congratulations. Michelle and I were both pulling for you all the way.
I only have one piece of advice to offer: quit listening to Lloyd Blankfein and Jamie Dimon.
