TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – Joe Biden says it is not important to him, but the US as a country, if Donald Trump doesn’t want to attend his inauguration.
Biden said during a CNN interview on Thursday that Trump being there would demonstrate the nation’s commitment to a peaceful transfer of power as well as set an example to other nations on the democratic process.
Speaking Thursday to CNN, Biden said, “It is totally his decision.”
He added, “It is of no personal consequence to me, but I think it is to the country.”
Biden lamented Trump’s refusal to concede, saying, “These kinds of things happen in tin-horn dictatorships.”
Trump aides have expressed skepticism that the president would attend the event on January 20, 2021 as he continues to claim voter fraud.
