President Trump said during the speech that “the greatest danger we face is a loss of confidence in ourselves—a loss of confidence in our national greatness.” He added, “We are—and must always be—a land of hope, of light and of glory to all the world.”
“We are a truly magnificent nation,” said President Trump.
“Four years ago, I came to Washington as the only true outsider ever to win the presidency. I had not spent my career as a politician, but as a builder looking at open skylines and imagining infinite possibilities.”
“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.”
“So, I left behind my former life and stepped into a very difficult arena, but an arena nevertheless with all sorts of potential, if properly done. America had given me so much and I wanted to give something back. Together, with millions of hard-working patriots across this land, we built the greatest political movement in the history of our country. We also built the greatest economy in the history of the world.”
“As President, my top priority, my constant concern, has always been the best interests of American workers and American families. I did not seek the easiest course; by far, it was actually the most difficult. I did not seek the path that would get the least criticism. I took on the tough battles, the hardest fights, the most difficult choices because that’s what you elected me to do. Your needs were my first and last unyielding focus.”
The President hit on his multiple achievements, including the multiple peace deals brokered in the Middle East, his economic achievements, and the multiple people helped during his short, but effective administration.
First Lady Melania Trump delivered her farewell address on January 18th, telling the nation it has been “the greatest honor of my life to serve as First Lady of the United States.”
