Why does Trump say he’s leaving?

President Donald Trump’s farewell speech on Thursday night is a classic of the art form.

The US president said farewell to his wife, Melania, by singing a rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” and giving his first speech since becoming president.

Trump, 71, spoke from the Oval Office with the National Anthem playing in the background.

He began by saying “We have come this far, but we cannot stop.”

His speech was not without controversy.

The speech was initially expected to focus on the recent US military operation in Afghanistan and the need to fight global pandemics.

But Trump said he would make “a few” changes to the speech to make it more presidential.

“I will be saying a few things that I think will be nice,” Trump said.

“Some of them are minor, some of them, I mean, the last two or three things I will be going over, are going to be minor, minor things, which I think are good.

I have to make them small and I’m not going to do it just to save myself a few minutes, but to make the speech more presidential.”

Trump also used his speech to highlight how he has been a strong supporter of the US military and how his administration has made major changes to veterans’ benefits.

He said veterans would receive more help for medical care and education and he would give “a great speech about veterans and veterans’ rights”.

Trump said veterans who had served in the US armed forces would get an extra two weeks of leave.

The president also called for a major overhaul of the Veterans Affairs system.

Trump said his administration is working on changes to help veterans, especially veterans from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan, receive medical care while they are deployed overseas.

Trump made his first trip to Afghanistan in April 2017 and has been there since March 2018.

Trump’s visit to the country came amid an escalation in the country’s civil war that has claimed more than 8,000 lives, more than 100,000 wounded and forced millions of people to flee their homes.

During his speech, Trump said the US had lost “more lives” in Afghanistan than any other country in the world.

“The last two weeks have been some of the worst we’ve seen in terms of the deaths, I think, in terms in terms we’ve ever seen in this country,” he said.

The United States is still struggling with a wide-ranging civil war, which has killed thousands of people and forced nearly half a million refugees to flee.

The war has left the country with many of the most violent conflicts in the Middle East.
