11:47

A 21-gun salute greets President Trump and first lady Melania Trump as they arrive at Joint Base Andrews for departure ceremonies. “This has been an incredible four years,” Trump tells a crowd of several hundred. “We’ve accomplished so much together.” Melania Trump says: “Being your first lady was my greatest honor … God bless this beautiful nation.” Trump says, “What we’ve done has been amazing by any standard,” citing rebuilding the U.S. military, creating Space Force, approval from veterans, and tax cuts. He also talks about the “medical miracle” of developing a COVID-19 vaccine and selection of federal judges and Supreme Court justices. The crowd chants “USA” and “thank you Trump” as Trump promises “I will always fight for you” and “we will be back in some form.”
