Trump's speech began by stating his original mission "to make America great again," his famed campaign slogan.

He said that his administration did what they intended to do "and so much more."

"This week we inaugurate a new administration and pray for its success in keeping America safe and prosperous," he noted.

The President continued to thank his family, the Secret Service, the Pence family, and the military, among other honourable mentions. 

"All Americans were horrified by the assault on our Capitol. Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans. It can never be tolerated. Now more than ever we must unify around our shared values."

He reflected on his time in the White House, his leadership in the face of COVID-19, and why he decided to run in the first place. He also condemned censorship and blacklisting in the US.

In conclusion, he said "I go from this majestic place with a loyal and joyful heart and optimistic spirit and a supreme confidence that, for our country and for our children, the best is yet to come. Thank you and farewell. God bless you, God bless the United States of America."
