Donald Trump Has Left The White House
Outgoing President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have left the building. They’re skipping President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump have left the White House for good.
Following a few remarks to reporters Wednesday morning, during which he referred to his tumultuous presidency as “the honor of a lifetime,” Trump boarded Marine One for a farewell ceremony at Joint Base Andrews. He thanked supporters, telling them “Have a good life” and playing “YMCA” before heading to Florida on Air Force One. He will be the first president in more than 150 years to skip the inauguration of his successor, President-elect Joe Biden.
The departing president has become the first in history to be impeached twice. He leaves the White House banned from most social media platforms and scorned by leaders and lawmakers around the world after he helped incite a deadly insurrection of the U.S. Capitol exactly two weeks ago.
Here are some more pictures of the Trumps leaving the White House for the last time.
Many online also made humorous posts about Trump's departure including climate activist Greta Thunberg, who joked, "He seems like a very happy old man looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!"
