WASHINGTON: President-elect Joe Biden on Friday said he has no issue with President Donald Trump not attending his inauguration  as the 46th US president on January 20.

Trump had earlier said he would skip Biden’s inauguration, refusing to fulfill the outgoing president’s traditional role in the peaceful transition of power and undercutting his own message just one day earlier on the need for “national healing and unity.
