The U.S. Department of State has posted on its official website that President Donald Trump’s term in office has ended effectively at 7:40 pm today January 11, 2021.
We have not been able to verify if this posting is accurate or was a mistake or a signal that the president will leave office later today. We reached out to the Department of State but they could not be reached.
President Trump has told supporters that he would press on even after House Democrats have now filed new Articles of Impeachment after Vice President Mike Pence himself said that he would not support invoking the 25th Amendment to remove President Trump from office.
This is a developing story.
