USA vice-president Mike Pence expected to attend Joe  Biden’s inauguration on January 20,2021
It was reported that the United states Vice President (Mike Pence) is expected to attend Joe Biden's Presidential Inauguration which is taking place on January 20th, 2021

According to Politico news, sources who are close to Mike Pence said he would likely make an appearance at the January 20 inauguration ceremony to show of support for the peaceful transition of power.

This happened after President Donald Trump publicly criticized Mike Pence after he refused to stop the certification.

According to a Source who is close to Mike Pence said;

“It was a much more difficult decision days ago, but less difficult now,”.

The spokesman for the Vice President Devin O’Malley, tweeted that Mike Pence had not yet been sent an Invitation to attend the inauguration by the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.

A spokeswoman for the committee,Paige Waltz, said no formal invitations are usually sent.

“The president and vice president are never formally invited,”

“We have not been told by the president or vice president whether they will be there.”

The outgoing president and vice president traditionally are invited through staff discussion and former President Barrack Obama and his wife was also present at Trump’s inauguration.

Trump has declined to say whether he plans to attend his Joe Biden’s swearing-in at the U.S. Capitol but has told staff he doesn’t expect to be there, according to a former Trump aide.

The White House aides are discussing the president and first lady leaving for their South Florida resort Mar-a-Lago the day before the inauguration so they wouldn’t be in the county’s capital when Biden takes the oath of office, according to a Trump friend.

Trump is expected to leave Washington before Biden is sworn in, because he wants to fly to Florida on Air Force One, the highly customized Boeing aircraft that carries the president, those officials said.
