President Donald Trump dropped some pretty big, tantalizing clues to his future plans regarding politics during his final speech as president on Wednesday morning, noting that he might, at some point, come back to the fray.
Trump told his supporters, “We will be back in some form. And again, I want to just in leaving, I want to thank our Vice President Mike Pence and Karen.”
Trump made the remarks at Andrews Air Force Base as he prepared to board Air Force One on his way to Florida. The remarks come after The Wall Street Journal reported yesterday that Trump had floated the possibility of starting his own political party, though top Trump allies had warned against the idea.

“It’s been something very special,” Trump said in reference to his administration. “What we’ve done has been amazing by any standard. We rebuilt the United States Military. We created a new force called Space Force, that in itself would be a major achievement for a regular administration. We were not a regular administration.”
Trump highlighted his administration’s success in cutting taxes and regulations, which helped boost economic growth and secure low unemployment numbers for the majority of his administration. Trump also highlighted how vaccines were developed in record time under his administration in response to the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in China.

“You are amazing people,” the president stated. “This is a great, great country. It is my greatest honor and privilege to have been your president. I will always fight for you. I will be watching. I will be listening. And I will tell you that the future of this country has never been better. I wish the new administration great luck and great success. I think they’ll have great success. They have the foundation to do something really spectacular and again, we put it in a position like it’s never been before despite the worst plague to hit since 1917, over 100 years ago.”
One thing is for sure. This great country of ours, which is without a doubt the best in the world, is on a trajectory that will no doubt take us through some of the darkest times for personal liberty we’ve seen in many, many years.
It’s no secret things would’ve been better under a second Trump administration. But now is not the time to mope around in defeat. There’s much work to be done to protect and preserve the republic during the next four years.
