Donald Trump says he ‘will NOT attend Joe Biden’s inauguration’ just hours after finally sending concession tweet

PRESIDENT Trump said he will NOT attend Joe Biden's Inauguration on January 20 after finally sending a concession tweet.

His announcement came the day after he finally admitted Biden won the US Presidential election, following months of false claims of voter fraud.


"To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th," Trump wrote in a tweet on Friday morning.

He did not provide further context as to why he would not attend, or where he would be when Biden is sworn into office.

Just hours earlier on Thursday night, Trump shared a video message admitting Biden won the 2020 election.

"Now Congress has certified the results, a new Administration will be inaugurated on January 20," Trump said, acknowledging Biden as the winner for the first time.

He added: "My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power."

Trump's concession follows the day after five people were killed in the US Capitol riots.

His Friday announcement came just after he told his 75million "American Patriots" that "They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form."
