Donald Trump Declares 'The World Respects Us Again' During Farewell Speech To America

Donald Trump has issued a farewell speech to America on the eve of Joe Biden's inauguration as President.

The outgoing leader has thanked everyone for their support over the last four years, however signalled that he won't be completely out of the spotlight once he leaves the White House.

"This week, we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous," Trump said in his speech.

"Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning.

"All Americans were horrified by the assault on our Capitol...political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans...[and] can never be tolerated."

Trump reflected on how he had limited political experience when he entered the White House on 20 January 2017, but he relished every opportunity.

"Four years ago, I came to Washington as the only true outsider ever to win the presidency," he said.

"I ran for President because I knew there were towering new summits for America just waiting to be scaled. I knew the potential for our nation was boundless as long as we put America first.

He believes one of his legacies will be the return of the phrase 'Made in the USA'.

Trump also spoke about all the things he's managed to achieve during his four years in office. From economic prosperity, to no new wars, peace agreements to border security measures, it appeared the President was proud of his time in the White House.

"We restored American strength at home and American leadership abroad. The world respects us again. Please don't lose that respect," he said.

It's an interesting sentiment considering he also reigned during racial unrest, a pandemic that has seen more than 400,000 Americans killed and a white-nationalist uprising that stormed the Capitol building just a few weeks ago.

He continued: "I am especially proud to be the first new president in decades who had started no new wars.

I go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart and an optimistic spirit and a supreme confidence that for our country and for our children, the best is yet to come," he said.

Donald Trump won't be attending his successor's inauguration tomorrow and many believe he will leave the White House in the morning to fly to Florida.

The 45th President of the United States will become the first in more than 150 years to skip an inauguration for their successor.
