President Trump’s Farewell Speech: ‘We Will Be Back’
President Donald Trump told a group of supporters at a ceremony at Joint Base Andrews Wednesday morning that, “We will be back in some form.”
The President and First Lady Melania Trump left the White House for the final time for Florida and Mar-a-Lago.
“We left it all on the field. What we’ve done has been amazing by any standard,” Trump said. The First lady also spoke.
In a goodwill gesture, Donald Trump said this morning of the incoming administration, “I wish the new administration great luck and great success. I think they’ll have great success.”
Trump also said he had left a note for Joe Biden in the White House.
Trump’s Record Features Many Successes
Always one to tout his accomplishments, mainly because no one else but conservative media would, Trump talked about things such as a new branch of the military, the Space Force, tax cuts, and a pre-pandemic booming economy.

And the Trump administration did do amazing things. The Space Force takes over some duties from the Air Force, a lot of which will have to do with satellite technology, GPS, and intelligence gathering.
The Trump tax cuts were some of the most consequential in decades, and allowed American workers to take home more of what they earned. This helped to create the booming economy. On November 24, 2020, the Dow Jones Industrial Average reached an all-time high of 30,045.84 points.
Unemployment for nearly every demographic also reached all time lows. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, African-Americans enjoyed the lowest unemployment rates since the 70’s.
The Era Of Biden/Harris
But as Donald Trump makes his way to Florida to begin his life as a former president, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris prepare to take office.
For most conservatives, this is a sad day. One that we did not think we would see, at least for another four years.
Already, Biden has promised to reverse much of the success America has enjoyed for the last four years.
This morning, President Trump speculated as to whether or not Joe Biden will raise taxes. “I hope they don’t raise your taxes, but if they do I told you so.” Trump said.
Guess what, Joe Biden already said he would raise your taxes. When someone tells you what they are going to do, believe them.
Biden is expected to unleash 17 executive orders aimed at reversing Trump policies – particularly on immigration.
Do They Really Think Trump Is Going Away?
Donald Trump will spend the next few days or weeks doing what most ex-presidents do, relax and play golf. He has more than earned that.
Most conservatives will no doubt say that they have never seen such hatred and vitriol directed at one man and one family. It was downright pathological.
But the things that the leftist media says about Trump are quite different from what those who know him say.
Over and over one hears about Donald Trump’s energy and his work ethic. Most that have worked with him say they have never seen a man his age with so much stamina. At 74, he puts in a longer day than a lot of people half his age.
The one question that anyone who follows politics is, does anyone think that this is the end of the political road for Donald Trump?
Does the left really think that he is just going to live out his days, peacefully and quietly at Mar-a-Lago, surrounded by grandchildren?
A good guess might be… not a chance.
There has been plenty of speculation about the next political moves for Donald Trump. One theory is that he might start his own media empire.
In a report from Axios in November, Trump talked about starting his own media company as competition for Fox News, who called Arizona early on election night for Joe Biden, and may have swung the election to the Democrats.
Third Party Chatter
During that last days of his administration, Trump has been at odds with members of the Republican Party, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who has been rumored to support impeachment.
There seems to be increasing speculation that Trump may want to start a third party. There is no doubt that 74 million people feel that rampant voter fraud took place in 2020, and that their votes were thrown out.
There is also increasing anger at the Republican Party, who most of those 74 million feel have abandoned them to play go-along-to-get-along with a Democrat Party who will control the federal government. The phrase “uniparty” is being tossed about a lot.

Could the ‘Patriot Party’ gain traction in a country where third parties have not done well?
With 74 million people who the Democrats call racists and white supremacists every chance they get, and a Republican Party whose current leaders want to go back to the pre-Trump days of the McCain-Romney-McConnell “lose with honor” strategy, the Patriot Party with Donald Trump at the helm just might have a fighting chance.
As he left for Florida, Donald Trump said, “We love the American people,” and that being president had been “the honor of a lifetime.”
He ended his remarks by saying, “I just want to say you are amazing people. This is a great country. It has been my greatest honor and privilege to be your president. I will always fight for you.”
It might be that a good chunk of the American people are not done fighting for Donald Trump, either.
