US President Donald Trump says he will not attend Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20, hours after promising a smooth transfer of power and calling for “healing and reconciliation”.

“To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th,” Trump said on Twitter.

His latest move comes as top Democrats called for Trump’s removal for “inciting” Wednesday’s Capitol riot which led to the death of five people, including a Capitol Police officer.

Trump’s opponents say they may initiate the process to impeach the president, with a possible vote next week.
