An event called “Donald J Trump 2nd presidential inauguration ceremony” is being planned by Donald Trump’s supporters, who continue to believe in the outgoing president’s claims of election fraud.
Trump’s “second inauguration” event, planned on Facebook, is supposed to be held on 20 January, the day Joe Biden is due to take his oath of office. The page shows more than 362,000 people have already shown interest in attending and more than 62,000 say they are definitely going.
The event page is full of comments supporting the president’s claims of rigging during the election and links to articles to conservative news websites containing baseless claims that have been debunked in the past.
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), a channel often promoted by Trump as he turned hostile towards Fox News.
The Facebook event is being seen as another stunt aimed to please the support base of the outgoing president.
