Fox News Just reported that VP Mike Pence will not attend President Trump’s farewell ceremony, but he will ensure he’s at Biden’s inauguration.
UPDATE: CNN covers for Biden and says it’s a time constraint… we are raising the BS flag on that. Trump send off is at 8am, the inauguration begins at 11am, that’s a 3 hour window for a 5 min helicopter ride from Andrews AFB to the National Mall.
Vice President Mike Pence is not expected to attend President Trump’s departure ceremony at Joint Base Andrews, according to two Pence sources.
Logistically, the sources said it would be difficult for Pence to be at Joint Base Andrews for Trump’s sendoff and attend President-elect Joe Biden’s inaugural, as the outgoing vice president is expected to do.
Trump will depart the White House South Lawn via Marine One for Joint Base Andrews early tomorrow morning, giving Pence a chance to bid farewell to the President then.
More on Trump’s departure: Trump is scheduled to deliver remarks before his final departure from Joint Base Andrews, where a military-style ceremony is being planned.
Invitations have gone out to Trump’s friends, allies and former administration officials saying it will begin at 8 a.m. ET. Each invitee is allowed five guests; organizers hope to secure a large crowd because Trump has complained about the size of his gatherings in the past.
