President Donald Trump tweeted that he will not be attending President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20. This announcement was made on Twitter, and the president did not use Biden’s name.
“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” the president tweeted.
The president released a video on Jan. 7 accepting Biden’s victory, also without using his name, saying his main focus now will be on a smooth, seamless transition of power.
Vice President Mike Pence, however, is expected to attend the inauguration.
