A letter from George H.W. Bush left in the Oval Office on January 20, 1993 to Bill Clinton wishing him “great happiness” while Clinton prepared to be inaugurated is going viral this morning after Donald Trump refused to commit to accepting the outcome of the presidential election.
The letter from the loser of the 1992 presidential election to the incoming commander-in-chief is being held up as an example of political civility. The letter emerged after Trump, who has spoken of a "rigged" political system and suggested widespread voter fraud could be committed on Election Day, said at the debate, "I'll keep you in suspense" on whether he would accept the results.
Hillary Clinton called Trump's comments about the election "horrifying" and argued that every time a decision goes against him; Trump claims it's "rigged."
In the letter George H.W. Bush wrote "I wish you great happiness here," also he advises Clinton not to let critics discourage him or push him off course.
