Trump wrote inauguration speech himself

Story highlights

  • Last month, Trump said he planned to write the speech himself
  • The decision is a departure from how Trump tackled speeches during the campaign

Washington (CNN)President-elect Donald Trump has written his inauguration address draft himself, two senior Trump transition officials told CNN Tuesday.

Last month, Trump told guests at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, as well as presidential historian Douglas Brinkley, that he planned to write the speech himself.
On Wednesday, Trump on social media shared an image of him writing what he said was his inaugural address at the estate last month.
    The decision is a departure from how Trump tackled speeches during the campaign, when he either delivered off-the-cuff remarks or relied on text prepared by his senior policy adviser, Stephen Miller.
    It's unclear exactly to what extent Miller has been involved in fine-tuning Trump's draft.
