On Monday, former president Donald Trump issued an angry statement through his spokesperson -- because he is banned from Twitter -- pushing back at a report from ABC's Jonathan Karl that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) plotted with fellow Republicans to "disinvite" him from Joe Biden's inauguration ceremonies over fears he might make a scene.

According to Karl, "McConnell's letter and his attempt to stop Trump from coming to the inauguration never came to fruition," adding, "a top adviser to the Kentucky Republican informed Trump's chief of staff Mark Meadows that McConnell wanted to disinvite Trump and McCarthy separately told the White House of McConnell's plan, Trump preemptively put out a tweet — his very last on the platform — announcing his decision to not attend."

According to Trump, the story is false and he used the statement to attack McConnell and his wife Elaine Chao of being "too busy working on deals with China for his wife and family!"

Trump wrote, "From Election Day, November 3rd, the day I realized that the 2020 Presidential Election was rigged, I would never have agreed to go to Joe Biden's Inauguration. This decision was mine, and mine alone," before later saying of the proposed letter, "This was nothing I ever heard of and actually, if he ever did get it signed, I probably would have held my nose and gone. The Election was rigged, the facts are clear, and Mitch McConnell did nothing."
