Shortly after leaving the White House for the final time, Donald Trump has given his last-ever speech as president.

Now, the run-up to Biden's inauguration has been a tense one, to say the least.

Getty

Since his election victory on November 7th, our country has experienced political tensions like never before.

Most people argue that Biden's win was a fair one...

Getty

After 4 long days of vote counting - and plenty of recounting - the Democrat was projected as the forty-sixth President of the United States.

However, people on the other side of the political spectrum have been arguing otherwise.

Getty

President Trump instantly attacked Biden's win with several unproven accusations of electoral fraud - and, of course, his loyal supporters added fuel to the flames with gusto.

Trump has been doing everything in his power to fight the election result...

Getty

But, on January 6th, enraged pro-Trumpers took matters into their own hands.

After repeated instructions by the president to "fight for the White House," hundreds of his supporters stormed the U.S Capitol...

During which a joint session of Congress had convened to formally count the Electoral College votes and certify Joe Biden's election win.

Things quickly became violent...

Getty

And the world watched on, horrified, as the building was overtaken and vandalized by the rioters.

It was clear to see that the police were completely overwhelmed...

Getty

And disgracefully underprepared.

And with Biden's inauguration just a matter of hours away...

Getty

Security is tighter than ever before.

Yesterday, shocking photos from Washington D.C began to emerge...

And as we all know, President Trump will not be attending.

Getty

He confirmed his absence in a tweet earlier this month before being banned from Twitter.

Instead, Trump was scheduled to leave DC on Air Force One at around 8 am...

Getty

With his destination set for his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida.

He is set to become the first president in more than a century to not attend his successor's inauguration.

Getty

Only 3 presidents have have done the same, with the last, Andrew Johnson, coming in 1869.

Well, Trump has now officially left the White House for the last time. 

Getty

Trump has taken a helicopter to the nearby Andrews base before he is set to then board the Air Force One plane to Florida.

But before he boarded the flight, he made his final speech as president.

Getty

Trump was greeted with cheers as he took to the stage, telling supporters he loves them "from the bottom of his heart" adding that "we've accomplished so much together."

He then went on to thank his family and staff for their efforts: "People have no idea how hard this family have worked."

Getty

"They could've had an easier life, but they did it for you," he added.

He then broached the topic of the ongoing pandemic.

Getty

"As bad as the pandemic was, we were hit so hard, places that thought they got away with it didn't get away with it. We achieved a medical miracle – the vaccine – which we developed in 9 months instead of 9 years."

He continued.

Getty

"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 good luck and great success, they have the foundation to do something really spectacular. We put them in a really great position."

Trump concluded his final words by saying he would be back...

Getty

Appearing to hint that he will try to run again in 2024 – though this will, of course, depend on the outcome of his second impeachment.
