President Donald Trump Tuesday released a farewell video condemning political violence, calling on Americans to “rise above the partisan rancor,” and touting some of his administration’s greatest accomplishments.
“To serve as your president has been an honor beyond description,” Trump said in a nearly 20-minute video shared by the White House. “Thank you for this extraordinary privilege.”
Trump touted his administration’s tax cuts, trade deals and economic foreign policy.
He also touted the domestic economy, the stock market’s performance and the quickly-developed COVID-19 vaccines.
“They called it a medical miracle,” he said. “Another administration would’ve taken three, four, five, maybe even up to 10 years to develop a vaccine. We did it in nine months.”

Additionally, he praised his administration’s efforts to revive the U.S. economy amid the pandemic and to secure the southern border.
“We proudly leave the next administration with the strongest and most robust border security measures ever put into place,” he said.
“As I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning,” he said.
