After getting back to the White House, Trump issued a formal, end-of-the-year speech. In this speech, the 45th president covered a variety of matters from the economy to the COVID-19 vaccine and Americans’ strength in overcoming obstacles and tough times, according to Newsmax.

Reviewing Trump’s Final Speech of 2020

In remarks lasting for nearly five minutes, the 45th president gave a recap of 2020.

Trump mentioned the progress that Operation Warp Speed has made regarding the COVID-19 vaccine; in doing so, the 45th president lauded the work as an “unprecedented medical miracle.” He also confirmed that all Americans will have access to the coronavirus vaccine in 2021.

After discussing the vaccine, Trump also shared statements about economic relief checks for Americans. The president remains steadfast in pushing for $2,000 stimulus payments, rather than the $600 ones passed by Congress; House Democrats voted in favor of said payments earlier this week, although the GOP-led Senate quickly stopped the measure.

Before the president’s speech concluded, he praised the character of this nation and its citizens. To be precise, Trump lauded the “tenacity” and “grit” that Americans have demonstrated when up against various challenges. One of the greatest examples of this includes the shutdowns that many Americans suffered from in 2020.

Politics in 2021

January 2021 will be an eventful month in politics.

Next week, the president will leave D.C. to rally for Georgia Republicans David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler. Both GOP senators remain in heated runoffs that shall determine the fate of the U.S. Senate. In order for Republicans to continue controlling the Senate, they have to win at least one of their races against the Democrats.

After Trump’s January 4th rally in Georgia comes the January 5th Georgia special elections. Then, on Wednesday, January 6th, Congress will meet for a formal certification of Biden’s votes from the Electoral College. One Senate Republican and 29 House Republicans have already confirmed that they will object to the certification of these votes.

Trump, meanwhile, has urged his supporters to be in the nation’s capital on Wednesday for a peaceful protest against the current election results.
