Donald Trump Leaves Office and Washington, D.C., Threatens “We Will Be Back”

HeadlineJan 21, 2021

Donald and Melania Trump boarded Air Force One for one final flight on the presidential aircraft Wednesday morning. Before flying to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida, Trump addressed the crowd of several hundred gathered at Joint Base Andrews.

Donald Trump: “So, just a goodbye. We love you. We will be back in some form. … So, have a good life. We will see you soon. Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you.”

Trump walked off the stage to the 1970s disco anthem ”YMCA.” Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” played from the loudspeakers as Air Force One rolled down the runway and lifted off.

Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey, tweeted, “Goodbye and good riddance Donald Trump. See you at your trial.” This comes as Politico reports lawmakers have privately discussed the possibility of a three-day impeachment trial for Trump, which would be the fastest of any such procedure for a president.
