Trump to reopen US ‘vaccine or no vaccine’

Incumbent President Donald Trump has revealed that he will not be present at the inauguration ceremony of the president-elect, Joe Biden on January 20th.

Trump made the disclosure on his verified Twitter account on Friday, January 8, 2021, clearing doubts of his 88.7M Twitter followers, as well as millions of Americans.

This comes less than 24-hours after a failed attempt to avert the  US Congress’ certification of Biden’s 306-232 Electoral College victory over Trump by a large number of pro-Trump supporters.

The world watched in awe on Wednesday how the angry mob violently made their way into the Capitol Hill building endangering the lives of the Vice President, Mike Pence, Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, as well as other congressmen, journalists, and others, including security officials.

At least four people lost their lives in the domestic terror attack, including a woman who was shot inside the Capitol building and lost her life in a nearby hospital.

Speaking after a turbulent few days in the country, he tweeted: “To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.”

Trump was only granted access to his Twitter account after the social media giants run by Jack Dorsey kicked him out of the bird app for at least 12 hours for alleged false tweets/comments about the election.

After inciting the crowd before the mayhem during a rally which he staged in the country’s capital, Washington, Trump has promised Biden a smooth inauguration.

“Even though I totally disagree with the outcome of the election, and the facts bear me out, nevertheless there will be an orderly transition on January 20th,” Trump said while reacting to Biden’s certification.

For the first on camera, Trump, after the Capitol invasion, admitted he has lost his seat at the White House by saying,  “a new administration will be inaugurated on Jan. 20…My focus now turns to ensuring a smooth, orderly and seamless transition of power. This moment calls for healing and reconciliation.”

Meanwhile, Zuckerberg has also blocked Trump from his “Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete” as a result of his unverified comments over the apps about the election.
