U.S. President Donald J. Trump on Friday said he will not attend the inauguration of Joseph R. Biden Jr. on January 20, 2021.

The announcement comes days after Trump rioters failed to overthrow democracy and overturn the will of the people when they stormed the Capitol on Wednesday.

Trump has refused to concede defeat after losing the election by a wide margin to Biden, and has been spreading baseless election fraud claims he has failed to prove in court.

Congress is discussing impeaching Trump for inciting the insurrection against the United States when he urged his supporters to storm the U.S. Capitol and then delayed sending in the National Guard.

After what many described as a failed coup attempt, Trump released a video on Thursday night saying he will facilitate a peaceful transfer of power.

The announcement that he will not attend the inauguration may likely come as a relief for Biden who blasted Trump on Thursday for inciting a mob against the United States.
