Trump spends his final hours in White House ahead of Biden inauguration

Washington Correspondent

Donald Trump has less than 24 hours left as president, and the reckoning has already begun – including from some whose support he was able to count on.

Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Republicans in the Senate, which re-convened today, accused the outgoing president of provoking the violence that has scarred this inauguration and that would go a large part to define Mr Trump’s legacy.

The trial of Donald Trump is expected to kick off in the Senate in the coming days, coinciding with the ambitious plans of the new administration to make America sane again.
