According to a letter posted by the National Archives Foundation, Pat and Richard Nixon knew Donald Trump would win the Presidential Election should he ever decide to run. Fast forward 3 decades later, their prediction came true.
As the story goes, ex-President Richard Nixon, wrote a short but complimentary letter to the president-elect back in December 1987 after Pat watched Trump on Phil Donahue’s TV show. The letter stated, “I did not see the program, but Mrs. Nixon told me you were great”. and ended, “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!”
During that interview, Trump had this to say, “Well, I’m a Republican and the Reagan administration was doing a great job for the psyche of this country after we went through the catastrophe previous to that, but the last couple years have been really bad for the Reagan administration, unfortunately,” Trump told Donahue.
The letter, courtesy of the Nixon Foundation, was tweeted on Wednesday.
