‘We did what we came here to do – and so much more’

On Tuesday Donald Trump gave his final address as president – asserting: “We did what we came here to do – and so much more.”

“America is not a timid nation of tame souls who need to be sheltered and protected from those with whom we disagree,” he said.

He added: “We are – and must always be – a land of hope, of light and of glory to all the world.”

Here’s what else he had to say:

  • On his administration’s record: “Above all, we have reasserted the sacred idea that in America, the government answers to the people.”
  • On domestic policy: “Our agenda was not about right or left, it wasn’t about Republican or Democrat, but about the good of a nation, and that means the whole nation.”
  • On foreign policy: “We revitalised our alliances and rallied the nations of the world to stand up to China like never before. As a result of our bold diplomacy and principled realism, we achieved a series of historic peace deals in the Middle East… I am especially proud to be the first president in decades who has started no new wars.”
  • On the Capitol riot: “Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans. It can never be tolerated.”
  • On his legacy: “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.”
