Outgoing president requests military-style sendoff that Republican leaders choose to skip
Republican leaders are skipping President Trump’s farewell event to instead attend church with incoming President Joe Biden on the day of his inauguration.
Senate Majority Leader, soon-to-be Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy will both attend church with Mr Biden, Axios reports. It’s a snub symbolising a possible GOP establishment break with Donald Trump and a sign of unity for the country.
Vice President Mike Pence is also skipping Mr Trump’s event but is reportedly not going to attend church with Mr Biden.
