A new day for the United States. Donald Trump officially left the White House Wednesday, January 20, 2021. Leaving the temple of American power on foot, the outgoing president was accompanied by his wife, Melania Trump, all in black, in a suit, bag and large sunglasses. First in the history of the country, the Republican will not welcome his successor Joe Biden for the inauguration ceremony.
Instead of meeting the Democrat, Donald Trump preferred to leave the White House by helicopter at dawn. Before embarking with the former First Lady, he pointed out a mandate “ffour year old antastic “, “the honor of a lifetime”, even thanking the press for four – long and sometimes painful – years of service.
After their departure from the White House, Melania and Donald Trump still wanted to respect the tradition. Thus, 21 cannon shots were fired from Andrew’s military base before the presidential couple spoke. “We will come back one way or another (…) We have rebuilt this economy twice, because of this epidemic. But think of us when you see record economic numbers“, warned Donald Trump at the end of his speech, already anticipating the likely growth of the post-crisis country.
“To have been your first lady has been the greatest honor of my life. Thank you for your love, for your support. You will be in my thoughts and through my prayers. God bless you and your families. God bless America“, greeted Melania Trump, a broad smile on her lips.
Contrary to what we have sometimes observed when traveling, she gladly held her husband’s hand after the speeches – on the song YMCA Village People – to the tarmac at the military base. They last boarded Air Force One with the rest of the Trump clan to travel to Florida, home to former billionaire Mar-a-Lago’s country club, their new home.
