US President Donald Trump has made his farewell address before leaving office, saying: “We did what we came to do – and so much more.”
In a video posted on YouTube, he said he took on “the tough battles, the hardest fights… because that’s what you elected me to do”.
Trump has still not fully accepted the result of last November’s election, which he lost to Democrat Joe Biden.
Biden will be sworn in as president on Wednesday.
In his final hours in office, Trump has issued dozens of pardons and commutations for people including Steve Bannon, his former advisor, who is facing fraud charges.
The last two weeks of Trump’s term have been dominated by the fallout from the deadly riot on Capitol Hill, when a mob of his supporters stormed Congress, seeking to overturn the election result.
“Political violence is an attack on everything we cherish as Americans. It can never be tolerated,” Trump said in his video, in which he did not acknowledge his successor by name.
