Trump Leaves White House, Says ‘It’s Been a Great Honor’
WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump has left the White House for the final time as president.
After Trump emerged from the building he spoke briefly to aides and supporters and said, “It’s been a great honor.”
After his departure, Trump went to Joint Base Andrews in suburban Maryland, where he had a military sendoff, with four U.S. Army cannons gave a 21-gun salute.
Trump then went to Florida, where he’ll stay at Mar-a-Lago. Trump is leaving Washington just hours before Joe Biden takes the oath of office.
It’s the first time in more than a century that a sitting president has rejected the tradition of attending his successor’s inauguration.
