Trump takes victory lap, does not mention Biden in farewell video message

By Morgan Chalfant, Brett Samuels | The Hill

President Trump took a one last victory lap in a taped address released on his final full day as president, in which he touted his accomplishments and wished the incoming administration luck without mentioning President-elect Joe Biden by name.

“We did what we came here to do and so much more,” Trump said in the 20-minute address, which was recorded Monday and released by the White House Tuesday afternoon. “This week, we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous. We extend our best wishes and we also want them to have luck – a very important word.”

Trump lauded the administration’s work passing tax cuts, implementing a deregulation agenda, building a wall at the U.S. southern border, and inking the United States-Canada-Mexico Agreement (USMCA). He repeatedly touted the strength of the U.S. economy before the coronavirus pandemic, and framed the administration’s response to the virus – which has been widely panned – as a success.
