Washington, 20th January: US outgoing president Donald Trump asserted that he was probably the first President in decades who has started no new wars.
According to the details, before leaving the White House, President Trump said in his farewell video message that he is the first president of the United States in decades who is not leaving any new war.
Reliving his proud moments on Tuesday, Donald Trump said, “We have achieved everything we came here to do and more than that.”
Listing out some of the key accomplishments of the US government from January 20, 2017, to January 20, 2021, Trump said his administration achieved more than anyone thought possible.
“Nobody thought we could even come close,” he said as he referred to the largest package of tax cuts, slapping tariffs on China, achieving energy independence and development of a COVID-19 vaccine in a record short span of time.
Trump also hailed his government’s actions against Iran and the assassination of Iranian General Qasim Soleimani as a success. President Trump said he took action against the ISIS caliphate and eliminated its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
In the address, Trump did not refer to Biden by name, but acknowledged that a new administration would take over at noon on Wednesday, and said that he would pray for its success.
He said, “We extend our best wishes, and we also want them to have luck, a very important word.”
Trump said, “We promoted a culture where our laws would be upheld, our heroes honoured, our history preserved, and law-abiding citizens are never taken for granted.”
Trump in his farewell speech indicated that he might be out of the White House, but he will continue to have an active public life.
