More than 60,000 people have indicated on Facebook that they plan to attend the event “Donald J. Trump 2nd Presidential Inauguration Ceremony.”
“Disclaimer: We are a grassroots collection of private individuals 325,000 strong, showing our support for President Donald J. Trump. We have no affiliation with any formal organization,” this is listed in the pages description.
The event is scheduled to take place at around the time of Biden’s swearing-in, and will be hosted by Ilir Chami and Evi Kokalari, who was reportedly part of Trump’s 2020 campaign.
Trump has not conceded the race to Biden, despite the Electoral College certifying the former vice president’s win.
The Electoral College confirmed Biden as the next president on Monday, with 306 electoral votes against Trump’s 232. The US Congress will certify the results on January 6.
