President Trump says he will be absent at the inauguration, Joe Biden reacts


PRESIDENT Trump said he will NOT attend Joe Biden’s Inauguration on January 20 after finally sending a concession tweet.

His announcement came the day after he finally admitted Biden won the November 3 presidential election after spreading false claims of voter fraud in the aftermath of the election.


“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.


He did not provide further context as to why he would not attend, or where he would be when Biden is sworn into office.

Just hours earlier on Thursday night, Trump shared a video message admitting Biden won the 2020 election.

Reacting, President-elect Joe Biden had said Donald Trump’s decision not to attend his inauguration was ‘one of the few things he and I have ever agreed on’ and that it would be a ‘good thing’.

Biden, who is due to be inaugurated as president of the United States in a matter of days said impeachment would be a decision for Congress as he and Vice-president-elect Kamala Harris concentrated on Covid and the economy.
