The White House on Tuesday afternoon released a farewell message from outgoing President Donald Trump, which called on Americans to pray for the new administration that is coming to replace him, without naming Joe Biden, his successor and the 46th President of the United States.
“This week we await the arrival of the new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous,” Trump said.
The main emphasis in the 45th president’s farewell address to the country was on reminding Americans that the United States is a great country and on the successes that his administration has achieved over the past four years.
“The biggest danger is … loss of self-confidence, loss of confidence in our national greatness. No nation can prosper if it loses faith in its own values, history and heroes – after all, they are the sources of our unity and our vitality, ”Trump said in a statement.
“We are, and must always be, the land of hope, light and glory for the whole world,” the President stressed, speaking of the greatness of America.
In listing the successes his administration has made, Trump said that “first and foremost, we reaffirmed the sacred idea that in America the government is accountable to the people. We have revived the idea that no one is forgotten in America because everyone matters and everyone has a say. ”
“We have restored American power at home and American leadership overseas. We have built the greatest economy in the history of the world. We have revitalized our alliances and rallied the peoples of the world to confront China … As a result of our bold diplomatic policy … we have achieved a series of historic peace agreements in the Middle East. “
Trump said his actions have brought the emergence of a “new Middle East” closer and stressed his role in bringing American soldiers home.
“I am especially proud to be the first president in several decades not to start new wars,” Trump recalled.
The president also once again condemned the violence in the Capitol last week and hinted at further political plans.
“And now, as I prepare to hand over power to the new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we have created is just beginning,” Trump said, without going into details.
