Joe Biden will be the forty-sixth president of the United States in just a few hours, following Donald Trump’s departure from the White House.

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

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…

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.

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…

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…

And the world watched on, horrified, as the building was overtaken and vandalized by the rioters.
It was also clear to see that the police were completely overwhelmed and disgracefully underprepared.

And with Biden’s inauguration just a matter of hours away…

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.

He confirmed his absence in a tweet earlier this month before being banned from Twitter and all other social media platforms.

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

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.

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.

Our former president took a helicopter to the nearby Andrews base before boarding the Air Force One plane to Florida.

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

via 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 broached the topic of the ongoing pandemic.

via 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.””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…

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.

There were mixed opinions on Trump’s unusually calm speech…

And now, Joe Biden has decided to respond to Trump’s words.

Biden simply tweeted this:

“It’s a new day in America.”
This is a developing story, so make sure to stay posted for updates on the inauguration.
