Five days before his passing and 2 days before he was hospitalized, the late former President sent a congratulatory message to the President-elect and Vice President-elect of the United States of America, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris respectively.

“The world is expectant as a new era of United States leadership dawns,” the former President wrote.
