USA Vice President, Mike Pence agrees to attend Joe Biden Inauguration

It was reported that the USA Vice President, Mike Pence will be attending the Inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20th.

Multiple media reports on Saturday cited senior administration officials as saying that Pence who was forced to take shelter from the US Capitol intruders during the riot has decided to attend Biden's inauguration on January 20.

The news of Mike Pence's intention to watch President-elect Joe Biden take his oath of office in person comes after Mike Pence and Donald Trump separated when the Vice President declined the President by performing his constitutional duty to certify the election results and formally announced Biden's victory.

Pence had faced intense pressure from Trump to stop the ceremonial vote counting during a joint session of Congress at the US Capitol last Wednesday.

A mob later descended on the US Capitol where Pence was presiding over the counting of the Electoral College results, forcing him and other members to flee the chamber when the pro-Trump rioters infiltrated the building, leading to the death of five people.

According to Joe Biden he annpunced on Friday that he was glad Pence would be attending his inauguration.

"He's welcome. I think it's important that as much as we can stick to what have been the historical precedents of how an administration changes should be maintained. And so Mike, the vice president, is welcome to come. We'd be honored to have him there, and to move forward in the transition," Biden said.

President Donald Trump announced on Twitter, before his account was permanently suspended, that he would not be attending.

Joe Biden said Trump's decision to skip his inauguration is "one of the few things he and I have ever agreed on."

According to Joe Biden while he was speaking with the reporters in Wilmington a
t a news conference after he introduced Cabinet nominees. He siad, "It's a good thing, him not showing up,".

"He exceeded even my worst notions about him. He's been an embarrassment to the country, embarrassed us around the world. He's not worthy to hold that office," Biden said.
