Obama Won’t Comment on Democrats Skipping Donald Trump’s Inauguration

Before leaving office on Friday, President Obama held one last White House press conference during which he refused to comment on Democrats skipping Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Obama was asked about the 50-plus Democrats planning to boycott Trump’s inauguration and whether that negatively impacted the peaceful transition of power.

Obama spent several minutes dancing around the question before saying, “With respect to the inauguration, I’m not going to comment on those issues. All I know is I’m going to be there.”
