Trump will not attend Biden’s Inauguration

By: Frank Corder - January 8, 2021

President Donald Trump announced via Twitter Friday morning that he will not be attending the Inauguration ceremony for Democrat President-elect Joe Biden on January 20th.

Trump becomes the first incumbent U.S. President since Andrew Johnson in 1869 to skip his successor’s swearing in.  Johnson did not attend Ulysses S Grant’s 1869 Inauguration.

Calls to have Trump impeached or removed by way of the 25th Amendment have increased since the raid of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday. Speaker Nancy Pelosi has indicated that a vote on impeachment could come in her chamber as early as next week.
