After his Twitter time-out for inciting a riot at the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday that led to five deaths, and a video he posted on Thursday after he regained his tweeting privileges claiming he wanted to help the nation "heal," Donald Trump tweeted on Friday morning he will be a no-show for President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration.
In a terse announcement, the president wrote, "To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th."
Twitter users were quick to pile on the one-term president for acting like, like a "crybaby" with one critic writing, "Wow, a sore loser and seditious traitor to our nation skips the Inauguration. Who could have foreseen this?"
That was the general consensus as you can see below:
