WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says he thinks the new administration will have “great success” and claims to have laid the foundation for it. Trump says the new administration has the “foundation to do something really spectacular.” He made brief farewell remarks at Maryland’s Joint Base Andrews before he boarded Air Force One for a flight to his Florida home. Trump did not mention President-elect Joe Biden by name during his Wednesday remarks. Trump told supporters he’ll be watching and listening from a distance and promised he will be back “in some form." Trump wanted to be in Florida before Biden becomes president at 11am CST.

Trump left D.C. on Air Force One just before 8am our time. He will now move back into the private sector as a former President. He has not discussed any of his future plans. But he has been involved in some discussions about creating a new party to challenge both the Republicans and the Democrats. The Wall Street Journal and Business Insider reports Trump wants to call the new party the Patriot Party. We will have to wait and see if that happens.
