US President, Donald Trump, has said he will not attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20, 2021.
Trump stated this a day after Biden’s Electoral College win was certified by a joint session of the US Congress.
“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” Trump tweeted on Friday.
He had earlier issued a broadcast saying he is now focused on delivering a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power.
Trump, in the address, also spoke about the invasion of the US Capitol by his supporters who were egged on by his claims of widespread voter fraud in the election of November 3, 2020.
This also comes amid reports that Trump is considering pardoning himself.
