President Trump tweeted today that he, “will not be going to the inauguration on January 20th,” for Joe Biden.
This marks the fourth time in American history that a President will not attend his successor’s inauguration.
However, after an unsuccessful attempt to challenge the election results of 2020 and the events that took place at the Capitol building, President Trump has since declared that he is focused on “ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition,” while also saying that “this moment now calls for healing and reconciliation.”
In a short speech posted on Twitter, Trump has since stated that “a new administration” will be inaugurated on the 20th of January. This comes after Trump spoke to supporters on Wednesday, January 6th in which he stated that he will “never concede” to Joe Biden and claimed this election was “stolen.”
“I have always said we would continue our fight to ensure that only legal votes were counted,” Trump said in his speech that was recorded in the White House. “While this represents the end of the greatest first term in presidential history, it’s only the beginning of our fight to Make America Great Again!”
Furthermore, President Trump has also condemned the events that took place at the Capitol building. “To those who broke the law, you will pay,” he stated while also adding that this was a “heinous attack.”
President Trump also tweeted out a message to his supporters saying “the 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!!!”
