I Won’t Attend Biden’s Inauguration- Trump

US President Donald Trump is set to miss the swearing-in of his successor Democrat Joe Biden, he has confirmed on Twitter. One source says he'll leave office a day earlier, flying to his Florida resort.

Outgoing US President Donald Trump said Friday that he will not be attending President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20. 

"To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th," he wrote on Twitter.

The decision appeared to backtrack on a message Trump gave a day earlier that he would work to ensure a "smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power" to his Democrat Party successor in the wake of the US Capitol riotson Wednesday.

Reuters news agency cited a source in the Trump administration as saying that the outgoing president would likely leave the White House a day before the inauguration and head to his Florida resort.
