President Donald Trump has left the White House for the last time.
From the way he left office, it’s doubtful he’ll ever be invited back – and if Twitter is any indication, Americans couldn’t be happier about it.

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:
Trump flew away from the residence on Marine One on his way to Andrews Air Force base where he’s scheduled a ceremony for himself to say goodbye so President-elect Joe Biden couldn’t steal his big farewell. Trump demanded a red carpet and a military display usually reserved for visiting heads of state.
Trump will fly to Mar-a-Lago on Air Force One, his last trip as president. Trump reportedly wanted to leave early so that he didn’t need to ask permission from Biden to use the presidential plane after the swearing in ceremony. He is scheduled to land in Florida shortly before noon so the plane won’t lose it’s designation as Air Force One before he exits.
Twitter has exploded with people ecstatic that Trump has finally left the residence for the last time. They can’t wait to see Biden inaugurated.
“Good morning, America. Welcome back,” lesbian political powerhouse Karine Jean-Pierre tweeted. She was named White House deputy press secretary for the incoming administration.
“It’s time to turn the page,” Chasten Buttigieg added.
America couldn’t agree more.
Good morning. With hope and courage in our hearts, we embark on a journey today to turn the page and reclaim the soul of our nation. It will be hard and there will be setbacks — but it’s a new day. I’m grateful this morning for every single American on this journey with us.

I’m enjoying watching Trump’s final humiliation. No close up shots of him coming out of the White House and getting on Marine 1. I wanted to see the look on his face. pic.twitter.com/B4Twy2bqzy

As I always tell my kids, how you exit any situation says a lot about you. Always go out with class and elegance and manners. So disappointing that no one in Trump family, not one person stood up to show up to honor their country tomorrow. That is a disgrace.

The president wants a big military send-off tomorrow. Unfortunately, the military is busy defending the Capitol from his supporters.
