Decidedly, until the end, President Donald Trump intends to stir up trouble. After stoking the embers of the uprising against Congress on Thursday, then belatedly calling for calm, he is reviving the controversy. This time by tweeting that he would not attend the inauguration ceremony of Joe Biden, his Democratic opponent officially designated the winner of the presidential election.

“To all those who have asked, I will not attend the investiture ceremony on January 20,” he wrote. Donald Trump will thus become the first president to refuse to attend the swearing-in of his successor since Andrew Johnson in 1869.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in on January 20 at noon, respectively as President and Vice President of the United States. This long-awaited ceremony traditionally takes place on the steps of Congress, in front of the lawns of the National Mall. Every four years, hundreds of thousands of spectators flock to the US federal capital to attend but access will be limited this year due to the covid-19 pandemic.

In January 2017, she provoked the first pass of arms of her presidency between Donald Trump and the media. The new president was indignant that the media pointed out that the crowd was undoubtedly less imposing than that which had attended the inauguration of Barack Obama in 2009.
