President Donald Trump should attend Joe Biden’s inauguration in January “if” Biden ends up becoming president, Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of Trump’s closest allies on Capitol Hill said Monday.
“If Biden winds up winning, yeah, I think so,” Graham told reporters when he was asked whether Trump should attend the Jan. 20 ceremony. “I just think it’s good for the country. It”d be good for him.”
But, Graham was quick to add, according to The Hill, “I hope that Biden will come to his.”
Trump’s legal team is continuing challenges of elections in multiple states, alleging a mass voter fraud scheme. But court challenges have been repeatedly tossed out, and states have been certifying results ahead of the December 14 Electoral College vote.
More Republicans have been calling on Trump to concede the election or, absent that, attend Biden’s inauguration.
Trump has indicated he might do neither, and might even launch a reelection event during the inauguration if it is not he who is taking the oath.
