Addressing a small crowd at Joint Base Andrews, he said: "We have the greatest country in the world, we have the greatest economy in the world, and as bad as the pandemic was [...] we did something that is really considered a medical miracle."
After leaving the White House, Trump arrived at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland via helicopter, issuing a speech to family, supporters and press before flying to Florida.
After thanking his family and his team, Trump also listed off his achievements while in office.
"Our vets are happy, our people are happy, our military is thrilled," he said.
"We also got tax cuts. The largest tax cuts and reforms in the history of our country by far. I hope they don't raise your taxes, but if they do, I told you so!"
Trump continued: "Job numbers have been absolutely incredible. When we started, had we not been hit by the pandemic, we would have had numbers that would have never been seen.
"Already our numbers are the best ever. If you look at what happened until February a year ago, our numbers were at a level that nobody had ever seen before.
"And even now we really built it twice. We got hit, nobody blames us for that - the whole world got hit - and then we built it again. And now the stock market is actually substantially higher than it was at its higher point prior to the pandemic."
Trump also paid his respects to victims of coronavirus, or the 'China virus' as he tends to call it, saying: "We've done a lot. There's still things to do. First thing we have to do is pay our respects and love to the incredible people and families who suffered so gravely from the China virus.
"It's a horrible thing that was put onto the world. We all know where it came from, but it's a horrible, horrible thing, so be very careful. Be very, very careful.
"But we want to pay great love to all of the people that have suffered, including families who have suffered so gravely."
Wrapping up his speech, he said: "I just want to say you are amazing people. This is a great, great country. It is my greatest honour and privilege to have been your president.
"I will always fight for you. I will be watching. I will be listening and I will tell you that the future of this country has never been better.
"I wish the new administration great luck and great success. I think they'll have great success - they have the foundation to do something really spectacular, and again, we put it in a position like it's never been before, despite the worst plague to hit since, I guess you'd say 1917 over 100 years ago.
"And despite that the things that we've done have been just incredible, and I couldn't have done it without you.
"So just a goodbye, we love you, we will be back in some form."
Trump added: "Have a good life, we will see you soon."
