Trump May Skip Biden's Inauguration

Description

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.

  • US Capitol Police Members Suspended After Violent Uprising

    Two members of the US Capitol Police have been suspended after welcoming pro-Trump rioters into the Capitol building on Wednesday. According to Business Insider, Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) said one of the officers took a selfie with a rioter. The other put on a 'Make America Great Again' hat and directed insurrectionists through the building. Ryan is on the Legislative Branch Subcommittee, which oversees spending on the Capitol Police force. He said one of the members may have been arrested. The attack Wednesday was the worst assault on the US Capitol since British forces burned it down in 1814.

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.

  • Biden Says His Inauguration Will Be "Reimagined"

    On Friday, President-elect Joe Biden said he expects his January 20 inauguration to be a "more imaginative" virtual event. Business Insider reports the event will be much like the 2020 DNC. "It is highly unlikely that there will be a million people on the mall, going all the way down to the [Lincoln] Memorial," Biden said. The decision is in stark contrast to that made by President Trump. Trump began his term in 2017 by arguing about the number of spectators at his inauguration.
