Trump and the first lady left the White House on Wednesday morning for the last time on route to Mar-a-Lago. During the departure ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, Trump said, “It is my greatest honor and privilege to have been your president.”

He concluded, “Have a good life, we will see you soon.”

This is the first time in 150 years that an outgoing president has not gone to the inauguration.

While Trump will not attend Biden’s inauguration, outgoing Vice President Mike Pence is expected to. Biden previously said of Trump not attending, “It’s a good thing, him not showing up.”

Inauguration Day will look different this year amid the coronavirus pandemic and two weeks after pro-Trump protesters stormed the U.S. Capitol. It will be largely virtual.
