Donald Trump Might Skip Joe Biden's Inauguration And Hold Massive MAGA Rally

Donald Trump is considering skipping Joe Biden's inauguration on 20 January next year.

According to Axios, the outgoing US President's fondness for the spotlight could result in him making the drastic move - which hasn't been seen in American politics in decades - as he may instead choose to host a MAGA rally in Florida.

The Trump campaign team has declined to comment on the proposal, which would see Trump exit the White House and travel on Air Force One for a made-for-television special.

The move would likely pull viewers away from President-elect Biden's moment in the spotlight in Washington DC, with Axios claiming Trump could announce his intention to run for president in 2024.

The news organisation reported: "Flying off from the South Lawn before landing in Florida would let Trump escape protests, the normal pleasantries of welcoming the incoming president to the White House - and sitting there while Biden takes the oath of office.

"The Trump talk could create a split-screen moment: the outgoing president addressing a roaring crowd in an airport hangar while the incoming leader is sworn in before a socially distanced audience outside the Capitol."

NBC reported Trump doesn't plan on inviting the Bidens to the White House or even call him.

If he announces his plans to run for president for 2024, it will mirror the date in 2017 when he filed the documentation for his re-election campaign for the 2020 ballot.

Last month Trump was asked whether he would leave the White House peacefully and let Biden and Kamala Harris take over.

"Certainly I will. And you know that," he told reporters. "But I think that there will be a lot of things happening between now and the 20th of January. A lot of things. Massive fraud has been found. We're like a third world country."

There remains no evidence of fraud in the result of the US election.

During that discussion, Trump didn't indicate whether he would attend Biden's inauguration. If he skips it, he would join the likes of John Adams, John Quincy Adams and Andrew Johnson who missed the inauguration of their successor.

Richard Nixon also famously left the White House after his resignation and refused to attend Gerald Ford's swearing-in.
