Only One Trump Supporter Turned Up At New York Capitol To Protest Biden Inauguration

Only One Trump Supporter Turned Up At New York Capitol To Protest Biden Inauguration

Only one protester turned up at the New York Capitol building to protest Joe Biden's inauguration today (20 January).

On the day that Donald Trump left the White House for the final time, Mark Leggiero travelled down to the state Capitol building in Albany.

However, it looks like he was the only one who fancied facing the cold and demonstrate his continued support for the 74-year-old, because no one else turned up.

And photos taken of Mr Leggiero show him cutting a very lonely figure, waving his flag limply outside the political centre.

It comes as Mr Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States, with his Vice President Kamala Harris becoming the first woman to hold that position.

During his speech, he assured the country that 'democracy had prevailed' after a troubling few weeks and months.

Mr Biden said: "A new America has risen to the challenge today. We celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause, the cause of democracy.

"The people, the will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heeded.

"We've learnt again that democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile. At this hour, our friends democracy has prevailed."

"I ask every American to join me in this cause. To fight the foes we face: anger, resentment and hatred, extremism, lawlessness, violence, disease, joblessness and hopelessness.

"With unity, we can do great things, important things, we can right wrongs.

"We can put people to work in good jobs. We can teach our children in safe schools. We can overcome the deadly virus. We can reward work and rebuild the middle class and make health care secure for all. We can deliver racial justice and we can make America once again the leading force for good in the world."

Trump, however, decided to boycott the ceremony and went straight back to his home in Florida.

He was the fourth president in the country's history, after John Adams in 1801, John Quincy Adams in 1829 and Andrew Johnson in 1869, to boycott the inauguration of their successor.

White House staff confirmed that Trump did leave President Biden a letter before he left office.
