WATCH: President Trump’s farewell address
On Tuesday, his last full day in the Oval Office, President Donald Trump delivered a farewell address to the nation.
In his remarks that were taped on Monday, President Trump wished the incoming administration success, though he did not mention President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris by name. They will be sworn into office midday Wednesday at the inauguration ceremony.
“This week, we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous,” he said.
“We did what we came here to do,” Trump also said, “and so much more.”
“We restored the idea that in America, no one is forgotten—because everyone matters and everyone has a voice,” he added.
In his speech, Trump also touted his administration’s policy achievements, especially regarding the Middle East and China, as well as the domestic economy.
“I want you to know that this movement we started is only beginning,” the departing president also said.
