With less than an hour remaining in his presidency, Donald Trump disembarked Air Force One in Florida and stepped into the presidential motorcade.
Trump descended the staircase alongside first lady Melania Trump, who left the White House on Wednesday morning in an all-black outfit but emerged in West Palm Beach wearing a bright, busily patterned dress.
The motorcade was expected to drive Trump to Mar-a-Lago, his beachside resort and, as of last year, his primary residence.
Biden is set to be sworn into office around noon. Trump, breaking with tradition, declined to attend his successor’s inauguration.
