Donald Trump Issues Farewell Speech And Says His Movement Is 'Only Just Beginning'
Donald Trump has issued a farewell speech to America on the eve of Joe Biden's inauguration as President.

"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.
