My fellow Individuals, with nice humility I congratulate Joe Biden on successful a hard-fought election. I ask you to hitch me in praying for his success. And talking of praying, as we enter a brand new and unsure future, I hope you’ll be part of me each Sunday morning on my new Preach TV (A subsidiary of Trump Information Community. Name your cable supplier at present).
We dwell in a carefully divided nation. So shut, that I nearly beat Joe. Truly, I did beat him – if you don’t rely ballots forged by lifeless family of Philadelphia Democrat social gathering bosses, coyote smugglers, Chinese language cyber-hackers and Nancy Pelosi’s unregistered grandchildren. However who’s counting?
I’ll quickly return to non-public life. I’ll proceed the honorable custom that has been set by my predecessors and arrange an undisclosed tremendous political motion committee to troll my successor. Please contribute no matter you’ll be able to – $5, $15, even $25 – and obtain your restricted version Trump presidential inaugural 2021 lapel pin.
As I look again on the previous 4 years, I’m reminded of so many achievements. So many. And you’ll be reminded as nicely by proudly displaying your Abraham Accord Commemorative Wall Map of the Center East; your Border-Wall snow globe; your full set of six Supreme Court docket Justice Christmas Tree ornaments.

You understand, on January 11, 1989 Ronald Reagan (a lot overrated, that I can let you know) gave his farewell tackle. He spoke of peering via the home windows of the White Home residence, the place the President and his household/senior employees dwell. He would gaze over the White Home grounds, to the Washington Monument, then the Mall and the Jefferson Memorial. On clear days, he mentioned he may see into Virginia, as far-off because the Bull Run battlefield, the place Lincoln noticed smoke rise on the day the south defeated the north within the Revolutionary Battle of 1812.
Nicely, I see extra prosaic issues within the residence. I see Sean Hannity amd Tucker Carlson on my 60 inch display within the Lincoln Bed room. And talking of Sean and Tucker, I’m happy to announce that they are going to be becoming a member of my new digital media property, “TRUMP TV!” which can quickly overtake the Failing-Fox-Information within the scores. Not since The Apprentice Season 1 Finale have we seen such highly effective programming: “Trump Tonight”, “Hannity and Trump”, “Trump & Tucker” and “The MAGA Morning Show with Jared and Ivanka!” and “Judge Rudy.” (For promoting charges, contact Government Vice President for Gross sales, Kayleigh McEnany.)
I take depart of the burdens of the presidency and return to the straightforward however honorable work as your fellow citizen. Maybe we’ll cross paths throughout my post-presidential solitude on the Trump Worldwide Lodge in Washington, the Trump Nationwide Doral; the Trump Turnberry in Scotland. (Should you guide now, use the promotional code MAGA24 for a half-price breakfast voucher. This provide excludes Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Niki Haley or every other candidate making pilgrimages to Mar-A-Lago to hunt my endorsement in 2024. Pay on your personal damned waffles, losers.)
If you already know me, you understand that this choice has not been straightforward. Not since Lincoln -arguably a reasonably decisive man – has any President needed to make a name like this. However when the Workplace of Administration and Price range truly crunched the numbers, it grew to become type of a no brainer. I imply, no marvel I fell nearly 80 spots on the Forbes 400. You’ll be able to’t actually make some huge cash as president. Till you’re a former president.
And so, with the grace of God and religion in our future, I bid you farewell. I, Donald TrumpDonald John Trump46 p.c of voters say Trump ought to concede instantly: ballot Michigan county reverses course, votes unanimously to certify election outcomes GOP senator: Trump should not hearth prime cybersecurity official MORE hereby make this concession. And talking of concessions, wait until you go to the new canine stands on the Trump Presidential Library and Seaquarium in Miami.
