I will boycott Biden’s inauguration, says Trump
Outgoing US President, Donald Trump said he will not attend Joe Biden’s Inauguration on January 20 after finally sending a concession tweet.
He made this claim hours after he finally conceded defeat to Biden in the US Presidential election in 2020, following months of voter fraud claims.
“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” Trump wrote in a tweet on Friday morning.
Trump did not explain why he would not attend, or where he would be when Biden is sworn into office.
However, following the riot and invasion of the Capitol and the US Congress by pro-Trump protesters, the president shared a video message admitting Biden won the 2020 election and promised a smooth transmission.
“Now Congress has certified the results, a new Administration will be inaugurated on January 20,” Trump said, acknowledging Biden as the winner for the first time.
He added: “My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power.”
