- Trump insists he won’t attend the inauguration
Unlike his boss, a senior administration official has confirmed that Vice-President Mike Pence will attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
President Donald Trump said on Friday that he would not attend the inauguration of Joe Biden scheduled to hold on Jan. 20.
He said “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the inauguration on January 20th.”
Mr Pence finally broke away from the shackle of Donald Trump on Friday after he rejected Trump’s call to reject the congressional certification of the electoral victory of Mr Biden.
The VP, as the Senate President presided over the senate certification of the electoral college votes that confirmed Biden’s victory over Trump.
Pence was Trump’s last stand to overturn the November election which he claimed was rigged in Biden’s favour.
When that failed, pro-Trump supporters stormed Capitol Hill in a last stand to overturn the mandate, leading to the death of five people including a police officer and the arrest of over 50 people.
Twitter, Facebook, Youtube have suspended Mr Trump’s account for inciting the violence in Capitol Hill.
On Friday, Trump joined Parler, a social network that says it supports free speech.
Barely 48hrs, Parler’s app has been removed from Google app store, Apple app store and the site host, Amazon has written to the company that it would suspend its account today, Sunday, meaning the website will shut down before looking for another service provider.
