Supporters Line The Streets Welcome Trump Home As He Returns To Florida
Crowds of supporters welcomed Donald Trump back to Florida earlier today (20 January).
Dozens of people lined the streets as the former President of the United States made his way to Mar-a-Lago.
Photos from the scene showed Trump's voters and fans dancing and cheering, waving flags and wearing t-shirts with his name written across them.
Some had also erected signs that said 'F**k Biden' and 'Trump 2024' - though it's not clear yet whether he will be running again for the presidency.
It comes after the 74-year-old left the White House in Washington, D.C., for the final time earlier today before Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President in the country's history.
In a break from tradition, Trump chose to boycott the inauguration ceremony and flew home straight away.
Before boarding Air Force One, Trump addressed a crowd at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
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 thanking his family and his team, Trump also listed off his achievements while in office.

"And despite that the things that we've done have been just incredible, and I couldn't have done it without you.
