U.S. President Donald Trump spoke about his reluctance to attend the inauguration of Democrat Joe Biden on January 20. He wrote this on his Twitter account.
вЂњTo everyone who asked: I will not attend the Jan. 20 inauguration,вЂќ the White House leader wrote.
Earlier on Jan. 8, the U.S. president, who lost the election last November, stood up for Americans who voted for him.
On January 6, a rally of Trump supporters, who did not recognize the results of the November vote, which resulted in the election of Biden as president, ended with an assault on the Capitol building and clashes with police. Five people were killed in the clashes. The sitting U.S. president himself still refuses to concede defeat in the election but promises to peacefully hand over power to Biden.
