State Department Website Claims That Trump’s Tenure Ends Tonight

Published

The State Department confused the world on Monday when its webpage claimed that Donald Trump’s tenure would end tonight: January 11, 2021.

On a biography page for Trump, the State Department noted that his term began on January 20th, 2017. But it also said, “Trump’s term ended on 2021-01-11.”

The website listed a specific time currently reading as 7:40 p.m. eastern. But a screen capture by Laura Rozen showed the time as 7:49 p.m. And a capture of the page by Archive.org showed it at 7:22.

The page confused people.

But it wasn’t just Trump whose tenure apparently ends today. The site listed Vice President Mike Pence as ending his tenure today.
