Before Joe Biden was officially sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, the now-former president, Donald Trump made his final departure out of the White House early Wednesday and made his way to Joint Base Andrews before heading to Florida.
He gave one final speech as the president and said, “We’ve accomplished a lot. What we’ve done has been amazing by any standard.”
Although he did not mention Joe Biden and Kamala Harris by name, he added that he wishes “the new administration great luck and great success.” He continued, “I think they’ll have great success. They have the foundation to do something really spectacular.”
He continued to tell his supporters goodbye and that he loved them and added, “We will be back in some form.”

Trump broke tradition by not joining the other former presidents to welcome in Joe Biden during the inauguration and he became the first president to do so in more than 150 years.
However, his Vice President Mike Pence followed through with tradition and attended the inauguration. He was in the presence of former presidents Barack Obama, George Bush, and Bill Clinton.
As previously reported, prior to having his Twitter accounts suspended, Trump announced that he would not be attending the inauguration ahead of time and said, “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”
Biden later responded and said, “One of the few things he and I have ever agreed on. It’s a good thing, him not showing up.”
