Donald Trump has shocked everyone this week by telling those close to him that he will be writing his own inauguration speech.
Daily Mail reported that though presidents have typically used speech writers to write the speeches they give on Inauguration Day, Trump has told visitors at his Mar-a-Lago estate that he is writing his speech himself. He is reportedly drawing inspiration from former presidents in doing so, as he has been receiving briefings on the history of presidential inaugurations.
One source said that Trump is specifically looking at the speeches of Presidents Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy to give him inspiration. He has reportedly been telling people that Reagan has “incredible style,” and he has noted that it has now been almost 100 years since Kennedy was born.
Trump is currently celebrating Christmas and New Years at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, where he is focusing on the health issues of veterans. This is said to be what his entire administration will be focusing on after his inauguration on January 20.
