White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said on Friday that President Donald Trump will attend the presidential inauguration on January 20, for the simple fact that it will be his own inauguration.

Speaking on Fox Business, McEnany was asked whether Trump will attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden and replied, “That’s many steps away. We’re talking January and President Trump believes he will be President, have a second term and litigation is the first step.”

The interviewer then pressed on the fact that the inauguration would be for Biden and said, “It would look pretty bad if he did not attend the inauguration. It would look like sour grapes, wouldn’t it?” McEnany then replied, “I think the President will attend his own inauguration. He will have to be there, in fact.”
