President Donald Trump is planning to overshadow President-elect Joe Biden on Inauguration Day by skipping the event and holding an opposing political rally, sources familiar with discussions told Axios.

The “made-for-TV grand finale,” Alayna Treene of Axios writes, will reportedly feature “a White House departure on Marine One and final Air Force One flight to Florida for a political rally opposite Joe Biden’s inauguration” on January 20.

Citing three people familiar with discussions, NBC News first reported on Tuesday that Trump is considering using this rally to launch a 2024 presidential bid, an idea that has been circulating around the rumor mill for a few weeks now. While nothing has reportedly been decided yet, NBC notes that Trump could announce a campaign earlier than January 20.

Meanwhile, Trump has refused to concede the election to Biden as he and his supporters continue to launch legal challenges against the results in certain states, alleging election fraud. So far, his challenges have failed to change the winner in any states.

Simultaneously, Biden is well under way in selecting the members of his incoming administration.

Only three presidents in U.S. history have skipped the inauguration ceremony of their successor: John Adams in 1801, John Quincy Adams in 1829, and Andrew Johnson in 1869. Like each of these instances, Trump skipping Biden’s swearing-in ceremony would follow a contentious presidential election.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
