Donald Trump leaves the White House.

For the very last time, what is probably the most controversial US president in recent history waves to the cameras on the lawn in front of his now former official residence - and flies away.


But Trump's words when he said goodbye to his supporters didn't really sound like the words of a man who wanted to say goodbye to the political stage for good, on the contrary:

Donald Trump, Former US President

“Goodbye, we love you - we will be back in some form.

Have a good life, we'll see you again soon. ”

An ominous message in which this man could again play an important role: Steve Bannon, former chief advisor to Donald Trump.

The fact that the outgoing president pardoned Bannon as his last official act speaks volumes.

After all, Bannon, a man with at least right-wing extremist tendencies, is considered to be one of the people who incited the Trump supporter mob to storm the Capitol on January 6th.

His proximity to the Trump base is considered unbroken.




Bannon threatened the process because he is said to have diverted donations for the planned wall in Mexico - about one million dollars flowed into his private coffers.

Preet Bharara, CNN Legal Analyst

"Steve Bannon's pardon has this sentence:" Mister Bannon is an important leader in the conservative movement and is known for his political acumen. "

What that has to do with a pardon makes no sense to me. "


The old friendship with Trump could become closer again in the future - for example when founding a new party.

The last message from the outgoing President should give his supporters hope in this regard:

Donald Trump, 45th US President

»I fought for America and for everything it stands for: safe, strong and free.

Before I hand over power to a new administration at 12 noon on Wednesday, I want you to know: the movement we started is only just beginning. There has never been anything like it. "


Trump's political future is only one thing, his private one is another: In this field, he faces a number of lawsuits.

Incidentally, it is unclear whether he gave himself a prophylactic pardon in order to escape it:

John Dean, CNN

“He doesn't have to publish his grace deeds.

He could keep it a secret and only pull it out of his sleeve at some point when he's accused.

The same goes for his children. "


The Trump era will officially end on January 20.

But his old whisperers will soon be able to take a stand again - as the spearhead of the infamous "movement".

Because Air Force One is flying the 45th President back to his golf department in Florida - but Trump is clearly not saying goodbye to retirement.
