Donald and Melania Trump have officially left the White House.
On Wednesday morning, the now-former President and First Lady walked out of 1600 Penn shortly after 8 a.m. and flew on the Marine One helicopter to Joint Base Andrews.
Before boarding Air Force One to head to Mar-a-Lago, the Palm Beach, Florida, resort purchased by Trump in 1985, Trump gave his final speech to a crowd of about 200 guests, including his adult children.
"We were not a regular administration," the 74-year-old said. "I will always fight for you... The future of this country has never been better. I wish the new administration great luck and great success."
"We will be back in some form," Trump said, adding, "Have a good life… We will see you soon."
Following Trump’s exit, an overwhelming number of actors, musicians, and other entertainers expressed their sentiments on social media.

We are going to be okay. From the wreckage there will be renewal, from the wounds will grow compassion and character, from the division will come clarity, from the despair will come wisdom, from the loss will come community.— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 20, 2021

Watching Trump leave this morning, I did have one regret: I really wanted to see him dragged out by the Secret Service.— George Takei (@GeorgeTakei) January 20, 2021

According to People in early December, the staff at Mar-a-Lago has been preparing for Trump’s arrival and have renovated his 2,000-square-foot residence at the club.
"Donald's apartment, which once belonged to Mar-a-Lago estate creator Marjorie Merriweather Post, will be expanded and spruced up," a source close to Trump told the outlet. "They are definitely renovating his apartment within the Mar-a-Lago Club to make it larger, more modern and comfortable for his use.”
Insiders have also told People that Donald and Melania have separate bedrooms at their Florida residence.
Hours after Trump left the White House, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president and Kamala Harris was sworn in as the 49th vice president of the United States.
