For much of Donald Trump‘s presidency, he’s broken protocol.
And, with just 12 days to go before the end of his controversial tenure, he’s confirmed that he’ll be continuing along said trajectory.
Because he’s confirmed he will not be attending Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration.
Full story below…
Flouting the long tradition of outgoing presidents attending the ordination ceremony of their successors, Trump tweeted moments ago:
“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”
For context, Hillary Clinton still attended Trump’s inauguration in 2016 after their hard-fought election showdown.
It’s a major detour from tradition.
The announcement comes on the heels of calls for Trump’s impeachment following this week’s shocking scenes at Capitol; scenes critics say he incited beforehand.
In any case, Joe Biden will formally be inaugurated as US President on January 20.
