US President Donald Trump will not participate in President Elect Joe Biden’s Inauguration Day ceremonies. He will be replaced by Vice President Mike Pence at the event. This information has been given by the news agency, quoting American media reports. Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in on January 20. In America it is called the Inauguration Day Ceremony.
Troubled relations between Trump and Pence
Twitter closed Donald Trump’s personal account two days ago. Trump had already made it clear that he would not attend Biden’s swearing-in ceremony. However, Vice President Mike Pence held a different opinion from Trump. Pence also made it clear that he condemned the commotion during the counting of votes of the Electoral College on 6 January. Pence called it an attack on democracy, calling it the dark day of American history. Trump later described Pence’s attitude as biased.
Biden made it clear in a media interaction on Friday that he was happy with Trump’s absence and welcomed Pence’s presence. According to CNN’s report, Pence has sent a message to Biden’s transition team that he will definitely attend the swearing-in ceremony. Biden called Trump the worst president in American history ever. At the same time it was also said that he did not deserve to be President.
Despite Trump’s displeasure, Pence congratulated Biden and Kamala Harris for the victory. Even during the meeting of the US Congress, he said that the most important thing is to respect public opinion. The country is above politics.
