Donald Trump Offering Personalized Messages on Post-Presidential Website

Former President Donald Trump has a large and fiercely loyal following of supporters, and now he's given them a way to request a personalized message.

Trump's post-presidential website has a section where supporters can request a message from the ex-president and former first lady Melania Trump for a "special occasion."

It's not uncommon for a former president to give people a way to reach, and you can request a personalized memento from former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

Requesting a message from the Trumps is fairly easy and can be submitted electronically directly from his website. The form asks about the occasion, information on the recipient and requestor and any additional details the former president should know.

Receiving a message from Trump isn't guaranteed, though, and requires planning because it can take up to six weeks to get a greeting. The office won't provide status updates, either, and advises people to not resubmit a request because a duplicate request will supersede the original submission and delay processing.

"President and Mrs. Trump continue to enjoy support and encouragement from the American people and have received thousands of requests for greetings, and they are honored to send their best wishes to those celebrating milestone occasions," Jason Miller, a senior adviser to the former president, told Newsweek. "The office of Donald J. Trump will work to ensure requests are handled as quickly as possible."

Record high numbers of people turned out in last November's election, and although he lost to Joe Biden, Trump received the most votes of any Republican presidential candidate in history. He hasn't ruled out making another bid for the presidency in 2024, and a majority of his supporters are willing to back him as the Republican nominee.

Six in 10 Republicans said that the election was "stolen" from the former president and that he should run again in 2024, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Monday.

Requesting a personalized message from Trump is free and can be geared toward a number of occasions, including birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, graduations and births. It's also possible to request a letter from him for a military retirement.

Trump's greeting section closely resembles the one on Obama's website. Clinton and Bush's sites also have an option for people to request a greeting, but it's only for military retirements. Clinton's and Bush's military retirement letters are limited to those who have at least 20 years of service, and Trump's are intended for those with 30 years of service. Obama's website doesn't indicate a minimum service requirement.
