Donald Trump is reportedly planning an absolutely insane Inauguration Day stunt. It is tradition for the outgoing president to be with the incoming president during the inauguration ceremony to demonstrate a peaceful transfer of power. However, Trump is planning on bucking this tradition and is instead flying down to Florida on Air Force One for a campaign rally held at the same time as Biden’s swearing-in. It’s hard to imagine something more petulant and childish while also being so corrosive to democracy. A move like this would further confuse Americans about the outcome of the election and lead some to believe that maybe Biden really didn’t win.
The other wrinkle into this is that Trump may be planning to announce his 2024 candidacy on Inauguration Day — perhaps at this Florida rally. Whatever happens on January 20th, it’s obvious that Trump won’t act like an adult. He won’t have the ability to stage a coup or refuse to leave the White House, so instead he’s going to surround himself with sycophants and do what he enjoys best in his favorite state. Either a parallel presidency or a never-ending Trump campaign is likely to be the reality in America for the next four years.
