Wednesday marked the beginning of President Joe Biden’s term as the 46th president of the United States. The day was filled with celebration from some, somberness for others, but history for all.

The day started with former President Donald Trump leaving the White House for the last time around 7:20 a.m. As he walked out, he waved goodbye and said “hopefully, it’s not a long-term goodbye. We will see each other again.”

He boarded Marine One and headed on his way to the Andrews Air Force Base, where he gave a short speech and he thanked his family.

“What we have done has been amazing by any standard,” Trump told a crowd as he boarded Air Force One and departed toward his Mar-a-Lago Florida Resort.
