WASHINGTON — President Trump will deliver a farewell speech to the nation via video on Tuesday afternoon celebrating his administration’s achievements and vowing that the populist movement he started is “only just beginning.”

The taped remarks, delivered on Trump’s last full day as president ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday at noon, celebrate American achievement and strength.

“The greatest danger we face is a loss of confidence in ourselves — a loss of confidence in our national greatness,” Trump will say, according to excerpts released by the White House.

“We are — and must always be — a land of hope, of light and of glory to all the world,” he continues.

The commander in chief highlighted some of his biggest achievements, including the Abraham Accords Middle East peace deals and his economic legacy.

“We restored American Strength at home — and American leadership abroad. We built the greatest economy in the history of the world.”

“We revitalized our alliances and rallied the nations of the world to stand up to China like never before.”

The president also disavowed the violent siege on the US Capitol and acknowledged that Biden will replace him as president on Wednesday.

“Now, as I prepare to hand power over to a new administration at Noon on Wednesday, I want you to know that the movement we started is only just beginning.”

Trump will skip the ceremonial swearing in of Biden on Wednesday and will depart the White House at 8 a.m.
