President Trump is reportedly not going to attend President-Elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20 and will instead travel for Florida for a rally, potentially announcing his 2024 bid.

Last week, “preliminary planning” was underway to hold an event during Biden’s inauguration, three people familiar with the matter told NBC News. According to Axios, Trump is now reportedly planning to depart from the White House on Inauguration Day on his final Air Force One flight to Florida during Biden’s swearing-in.

Trump has yet to concede or invite Biden to the White House. This has been the second-longest delay between a general election and a White House meeting between an outgoing president and his successor. Trump previously said that he would “certainly” concede if Biden one enough votes in the Electoral College — but then dug in and said that Biden “can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous 80,000,000 votes” were not fraudulent or illegally obtained.”
