US President Joe Biden revealed after his inauguration that outgoing president Donald Trump had left him a “generous” letter in the Oval Office.
“The president wrote a very generous letter,” he told reporters at the White House.
“Because it was private, I won’t talk about it until I talk to him. But it was generous.”
Despite the new leader’s kind words, some have since speculated that the note was not as gentlemanly as he would have them believe.
Trump, who continuously claimed the election had been stolen from him up until he was forced to leave the White House on Wednesday (local time), broke a 150-year-old tradition by not watching the new president be sworn in.
Thousands of people have taken to Twitter to share their version of Trump’s parting words to his Democrat opponent.
One hilariously edited letter - typed on a mock piece of stationary from the White House - read “Joe, you know I won” and bears a copy of Trump’s signature on the bottom.

Another that appeared to have been written by a child said “sorry because of nothing”.
One man posted a note handwritten in Sharpie with the caption “Trump’s letter to Biden leaked.”
“Dear sleepy Joe, I won the election BIGLY and you lost. You are a cheater and I hate you. People say to me, sir, Joe is a big cheat!” the letter read.
“P.S. It usually takes 3 flushes on the Oval Office toilet - Donald Trump”.
Jeff Greenfield, a political analyst often seen on ABC and CNN, Tweeted: “Joe: The Red Button Is for Big Mac and Fries; Yellow Button Is For Diet Coke; Blue Button turns on FOX; Black Button Launches the Nukes...or Maybe Black Is for Big Mac and Fries and Red Launches the Nukes."
