Trump showed up in the White House briefing room bragging about the stock market for about 51 seconds as he ran away asking no questions.

The Dow Jones industrial average – I'm very excited about what happened on the vaccine front. That was absolutely amazing. Medically, nothing like this has ever happened before. I think people are recognizing that and it's making a big impact. Since the stock market just broke 30,000, that number has never been broken. That's a sacred number, 30,000. Nobody thought they would ever see it. It is the ninth time since the beginning of 2020 and it is the 48th time that records have been broken during the Trump administration.
I just want to congratulate everyone in the administration who worked so hard. Above all, I would like to congratulate the people in our country because there are no people like you. Thank you all. Many thanks.
Trump's new strategy is to ignore the fact that he is about to leave office, run away from questions, and just stick his head out to acknowledge things he had nothing to do with.
It is sad and pathetic that Trump is trying to stay relevant while avoiding responsibility for being the biggest incumbent loser in the presidential election since 1932.
Donald Trump really believes he has a political future, but every sign of his inability to function in reality is a reminder that he will never be in the White House again.
