TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump in a prerecorded farewell address touted his record on the economy and foreign policy, while glossing over the Capitol riot that consumed the final weeks of his presidency.
He also failed to mention his successor, Joe Biden, by name. Biden will be inaugurated as the nation’s 46th president Wednesday…
Trump has previously acknowledged that a new administration will take charge on Wednesday, but he has not formally conceded to Biden. Unlike past presidents’ farewell speeches, Trump’s address makes no specific mention of his successor.”
