  • Trump May Skip Biden's Inauguration

    Business Insider reports that President Donald Trump is reportedly crafting a made-for-TV White House exit on Inauguration Day. According to Axios, Trump is plans to depart to Florida on Air Force One to have a rally at the same time that Joe Biden is sworn in at a socially-distanced inauguration in Washington, DC. This could break with Inauguration Day traditions on January 20, designed to showcase a peaceful transfer of power and the stability of US democracy. Last week, Biden said that he didn't care if Trump skipped out on his inauguration, hopes that he would display a peaceful transfer of power.
