Behind the Poll:
It’s been claimed that Mitch McConnell persuaded Trump not to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration. The story centers around a letter that McConnell is said to have written to Trump out of concern he would cause disruption.
Trump denied this, saying: “From Election Day, November 3rd, the day I realized that the 2020 Presidential Election was rigged, I would never have agreed to go to Joe Biden’s Inauguration. This decision was mine, and mine alone.”
He added: “According to third-rate reporter Jonathan Karl of ABC Fake News, McConnell unsuccessfully tried getting a letter signed by others for me not to go. This was nothing I ever heard of and actually, if he ever did get it signed, I probably would have held my nose and gone.” Do you think Trump should have gone to the inauguration or was he right to stay away?
