President Donald Trump left the White House for final time in term.
President Donald Trump has left the White House for the last time in his term, which ends at 12pm ET(17 GMT), and will become the first president in over 150 years not to attend successor’s inauguration.
President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration will begin 10:30am ET (15:30 GMT) and will take place amid unprecedented security in the wake of the storming of the US Capitol building on January 6.
The crowd size will be extremely limited as the capital Washington, DC, has been under lockdown due to security fears prompted by the deadly riot at the Capitol – the seat of the US government.
Trump was impeached for “incitement to insurrection” for his role in the Capitol mayhem, becoming the first president in US history to be impeached twice.
