Trump will thus become the first incumbent president since Andrew Johnson, who was in office from 1865 to 1869, who will not attend the inauguration of his successor.

In a previous tweet, Trump sent a message to his followers: “The 75,000,000 great American patriots who voted for me, UNITED STATES FIRST and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE in the future.”

The 75,000,000 great American Patriots who voted for me, AMERICA FIRST, and MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, will have a GIANT VOICE long into the future. They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form !!!

“They will not be disrespected or treated unfairly in any way, shape or form!”

Trump recognized yesterday, for the first time, his defeat in the November elections and condemned the assault on the Capitol on Wednesday by his followers, a fact for which he has been held responsible for having harangued them with their unfounded allegations of electoral fraud before it occurred.

In that message, Trump assured that those of his followers who committed crimes in the assault on Congress, in which there were five deaths, including a policeman, “will pay for it.”

Trump has spent the last two months, since the election results were known, denouncing irregularities in the elections and an alleged fraud that he has not been able to prove.
