Donald Trump Leaves White House, Vows To Come Back
The outgoing US President, Donald Trump, on Wednesday left the White after completing his tenure. He was spotted leaving with his wife, Melania, from the lawn of the White House.
The Presidential Marine One helicopter carrying Donald and Melania Trump took off shortly after 2:15 p.m. from the gardens of the White House.
Speaking just a few words, the outgoing president referred to a “fantastic four-year” term, “It’s been a great honour, the honour of a lifetime,” Mr Trump said.
“This has been an incredible four years, We’ve accomplished so much together.” the president said when he arrived at Air Andrews base, about fifteen kilometres from Washington, where the presidential plane Air Force One is housed, before thanking his family.
“The First Lady is a woman of grace, beauty and dignity and so popular with the people,” he said before inviting his wife to speak. Melania spoke briefly: “It has been my greatest honour. You will be in my thoughts and my prayers. May God bless this beautiful nation ”.
“I will always fight for you. I will be watching. I will be listening, and I will tell you that the future of this country has never been better. I wish the new administration great luck and great success. I think they’ll have great success.” he concluded. He thanked his Vice President Mike and his staff one last time.
“Good luck, see you soon”. The Republican billionaire flew in stride to Florida for his last flight aboard Air Force One, to join his golf course in Mar-a-Lago.
The incoming President Joe Biden will shortly be inaugurated as the 46th American President.
His inaugural speech will not be about Trump, according to Biden’s spokesperson, Jen Psaki.
He said: Joe Biden’s first speech as president will not be about the outgoing president.
“We spend a lot less time talking about and thinking about and worrying about Donald Trump than I think most people assume,” Jen Psaki, who will be the White House press secretary, told CNN.
“This is a forward-looking speech,” she said of the inaugural address, which Biden will deliver after he is sworn in at noon (1700 GMT).”
