Donald Trump leaves the White House for the last time as U.S. President

Donald Trump has left the White House for the last time as U.S. president on Wednesday, hours before President-elect Joe Biden assumes office.

Top Republicans, including Vice President Mike Pence, were not there to see Trump depart.

He left the White House with his wife Melania just after 8 a.m. (1300 GMT) by helicopter on his way to a sendoff event at Joint Air Force Base Andrews.

Trump has kept to his words that’s he would not be attending Joe Biden’s inauguration, which has been a political tradition for centuries. He’s the first out-going president that did not attend the incoming president’s inauguration for 152 years.

Biden left the presidential guest house in Washington on his way to church, where he was joined by Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House of Representatives Republican leader Kevin McCarthy.

The President-elect who is 78-year-old will become the oldest U.S. president in history
