President Donald Trump has just nine days left in his post, with president-elect Joe Biden due to be inaugurated on January 20, 2021. As expected, President Trump has not accepted defeat willingly and his denial of the 2020 election results resulted in the violent “stop the steal” rally last week. Now an impeachment process has begun against the president. But has Donald Trump resigned?
Has Donald Trump resigned?
A statement on the US State Department reads: “Donald J. Trump’s term ended on 2021-01-11 19:38:51” something which has caused confusion around Mr Trump’s role.
The statement also said Vice President Mike Pence’s term had ended on the same date.
However, neither Mr Trump nor Mr Pence have resigned sources have said.
Buzzfeed correspondent Christopher Miller tweeted: “Sources tell Buzzfeed ‘disgruntled staffer’ is behind the State Department site’s change of Trump and Pence’s biographies.”
