WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Trump, breaking his silence on Twitter this morning, saying he will not attend the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden on January 20th. The news comes after a chaotic week on Capitol Hill, and less than two days after Twitter temporarily banned the President from its platform.
On Wednesday, civil unrest broke out at the Capitol building, as a massive pro-Trump protest turned into a riot. Vandals broke windows, stormed the halls of the Capitol and destroyed the offices of several prominent lawmakers. As a result, lawmakers on both sides are calling for President Trump to leave office early, as the FBI is actively working to identify and charge the rioters who stormed the nation’s capital.
