Impeached again: Trump doubles down ahead of inauguration day


Is It the final nail in the coffin of American exceptionalism? With the impeachment of Donald Trump comes fresh revelations about those who plotted both outside and in the US Capitol to overturn the result of the presidential election. US Democracy may well weather the current storm in Washington but the certainty that its 240-year old system of government will always prevail while here in France we have had three monarchies, three dictatorships and five republics, that certainty seems well and truly over.

    Rumors have been flying about what, if anything, President Donald Trump will do during the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. According to Business Insider, one such story making the rounds is that Trump will visit his Turnberry golf resort in Scotland. In fact, a Scottish newspaper reported Sunday that a US military plane sometimes used by Trump is scheduled to arrive at an airport near the resort. But on Tuesday, Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon put an end to such speculation. Sturgeon said the country's national lockdown, which includes a prohibition on non-essential travel, applies to Trump as well.

  • 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. Since losing the election, Trump has refused to concede to Biden or invite him to the White House. He believes that the election was rigged due to a conspiracy, in which he has not provided proof.
