Just hours before the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden, President Donald Trump addressed his supporters Wednesday morning as he and First Lady Melania Trump departed the White House for the last time, promising, "We will be back in some form."
In a breaking of tradition, Trump has decided to forego Biden's inauguration and instead held his own farewell gathering hours earlier as he left Washington, D.C. for his home in Florida. Vice President Pence was not in attendance for the Trump family's departure, but reportedly will attend Biden's inauguration.
In Trump’s remarks, he warned Americans of the Biden administration's plans to roll back many of Trump's policies via executive order, stating that if left unchallenged, we would see “incredible” numbers of unilateral actions. According to Breitbart, Biden has some 17 executive actions and orders ready for signing in his first hours in office.
"I hope they don't raise your taxes, but if they do I told you so," Trump warned.
Aside from his warnings, Trump wished the Biden administration well, saying, "I wish the new administration great luck and great success...I think they'll have great success."
According to Fox News President Trump left a note for Biden.
Trump also took a moment to tout his administration's greatest achievements, such as the creation of the Space Force, tax cuts, judicial appointments, stock market record high and more.
"We left it all on the field," Trump said of his time in office. "What we've done has been amazing by any standard,"
Trump will arrive in Florida before President-Elect Biden’s inauguration.
