President Donald Trump has announced that he will not attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on 20 January.

Trump who have explored many undemocratic avenues to overturn the election said he wanted to make it clear to those who were asking if he would attend.

“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” he said in a tweet on Friday.

Vice President Mike Pence is expected to attend according to some of aides.

Trump’s move to break US inauguration custom comes as Democrats call for the president’s removal for inciting the invasion of the US Capitol on Wednesday.

His opponents say they may initiate the process to impeach the president, with a possible vote next week.

It is extremely unlikely impeachment proceedings would clear Congress, but they could be started as a symbolic gesture.
