WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump has left the White House for the final time as president.

After Trump emerged from the building he spoke briefly to aides and supports and said, "It's been a great honor."

Trump now heads to Joint Base Andrews in suburban Maryland, where he'll have a military sendoff. Four U.S. Army cannons are set up for a 21-gun salute.

Trump then flies to Florida, where he'll stay at Mar-a-Lago. Trump is leaving Washington just hours before Joe Biden takes the oath of office.

It's the first time in more than a century that a sitting president has rejected the tradition of attending his successor's inauguration.
