Donald Trump admitted defeat in a video announcement Thursday night, though he still seems to be very frustrated with the situation.

The president took to Twitter after his 12-hour ban ended to announce he will not be attending President-Elect Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20.

To all of those who have asked, I will not be going to the Inauguration on January 20th.

His decision to skip out on the ceremony makes him the first departing president to refuse to attend their successor's inauguration since 1869.

The last president that chose to not attend the ceremony was Andrew Johnson, who was actually impeached in 1868. 

It seems that multiple Twitter users are not really surprised by the decision, and actually quite excited about it.

Though he will not be in attendance at the inauguration ceremony, President Trump did say he is committing to a "smooth, orderly, and seamless transfer of power," after months of denying the election results.
