President Trump’s supporters have planned a “second inauguration” event for him online on the day Joe Biden is due to take his oath of office. The event is called “Donald J Trump 2nd presidential inauguration ceremony” and is planned on Facebook to be held January 20. Already more than 325,000 people have shown interest in attending. Out of those, more than 60,000 say they are definitely going, according to the Daily Dot.
One of the hosts of the event is Evi Kokalari, also known as Evi Kokalari-Angelakis, according to her Twitter profile, who was part of the Trump campaign in the 2020 elections and appears on right-leaning news networks, including One America News Network (OAN). Ms Kokalari’s latest post on the event’s page points towards Facebook’s election information system that she deems as “fake” and says: “Our voting rights are under attack! So is our freedom of speech! And FB’s disclaimer on this post, proves just that.”
The event page itself was marked by Facebook with the disclaimer: “Joe Biden is the President-elect. He will be inaugurated as the 46th US President on January 20, 2021.”
So far there has been no confirmation from the Trump team whether the president endorses this event or is planning to attend it himself.
President Trump was reportedly planning attempting to outshine President Elect Biden with a rally on the day of inauguration announcing his 2024 run. His team had started working on the preparations but there has been no formal announcement.
