Donald Trump on Wednesday exited the White House for the last time as the United States President to board a flight to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, which will be his permanent home after he failed to win his re-election bid.

 

Trump, 74, has already announced that he will not attend the inauguration of Joe Biden as President and Kamala Harris as the Vice President, becoming the first president to skip his successor's inauguration since Andrew Johnson in 1869.

He left the White House on the Marine One presidential helicopter along with his wife Melania.
