According to CNBC:
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump on Friday said that he will not attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden, who will take charge in less than two weeks.
Biden’s victory was projected by all major news outlets in mid-November and confirmed by Electoral College votes in mid-December. The Republican president has falsely insisted he won in a “landslide,” asserting his reelection was stolen through massive electoral fraud.
His refusal to accept the election results culminated in a deadly riot on Wednesday, when swarms of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol and derailed congressional proceedings to tally electors’ votes and confirm Biden’s win in the Nov. 3 election.
In a nearly three-minute video posted on Thursday, Trump, without mentioning Biden by name acknowledged that “a new administration will be inaugurated on January 20th.”
It is unclear what President Trump will do instead of the inauguration.
