WASHINGTON, D.C.  — President Donald Trump is finishing up his term today with his final full day in office.

It's been a tumultuous ride including two impeachments.

We're curious what you would say to the President on his way out of office?

We'll share some of your responses on KRIS 6 News broadcasts throughout the day.

His final day does not list any events scheduled for Tuesday. But his final day at the White House is expected to generate plenty of news.

According to CNN, at some point on Tuesday, Trump is expected to release a video address sharing what he feels has been his administration's greatest accomplishments.

First lady Melania Trump released her own farewell video on Monday, where she thanks service members and caregivers for an "unforgettable" four years in office, and called on Americans to "rise above" violence.

In their finals days in office, Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush both sat down with multiple media outlets to reflect on the highs and lows of their time in office. However, Trump has largely stayed out of the spotlight in the days following the Jan. 6 riots at the Capitol and his subsequent impeachment.

Also, on Tuesday, in holding with presidential tradition, Trump is expected to release a long list of presidential pardons for those he feels have been wrongly imprisoned or unfairly sentenced.

Various media reports indicate that between 50 and 100 people could receive a pardon from the president on Tuesday.

After leaving the White House, Trump is expected to fly to Florida to his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach.

Hanging over Trump's final days office is the specter of his impending second impeachment trial, which could begin as early as this week when the House transfers the article of impeachment to the Senate.
