THOUSANDS of Donald Trump fans are planning a second inauguration on January 20 when Joe Biden will be sworn in as president, reports say.
Biden will be inaugurated as the 46th US President on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 – but MAGA fans are organizing an alternate online event at 12pm that day.
Inauguration day is a date set by the 20th Amendment to the Constitution, meaning it's enshrined in law.
But a Facebook event called "Donald J. Trump 2nd Presidential Inauguration Ceremony" has been set up and will be attended by 63.4K people who said they were "Going."
Some 263.9K others said they were "Interested" in attending the event on the day Biden officially takes office.
The page disclaimer read: "We are a grassroots collection of private individuals 325,000 strong, showing our support for President Donald J. Trump.
"We have no affiliation with any formal organization."
The event will be hosted by organizers Ilir Chami and Evi Kokalari and it was set up via a private page of the same name.
The Facebook page was established on November 21, 2020, nearly three weeks after the election. It has 25.4K members.
Trump's presidential inauguration was on January 20, 2017.
He and Melania Trump were welcomed to the White House by former President Barack Obama and the then First Lady Michelle Obama.
Meanwhile, members of the Proud Boys are reportedly plotting to disguise themselves as Biden fans to wreak havoc during the presidential inauguration.
The Trojan Horse-style plot was revealed on InfoWars alum Joe Biggs’ YouTube channel — on which the right-wing militants were ordered to "kick off this presidency with f***ing fireworks", it's reported.
The pro-Trump Proud Boys are a far-right organization that has been accused of political violence.
In a November 20 episode of The War Boys, the group's leader Enrique Tarrio instructed members to attend the inauguration in Washington DC and "take over", reports Daily Dot.
"Revolt motherf***ers," he said. "Do whatever you got to do to f***ing get your tickets.
"You show up there in Biden gear and you turn his inauguration into a f***ing circus, a sign of resistance, a sign of revolution.
"You f***ing kick off this presidency with f***ing fireworks."
In the first episode of the YouTube show Biggs characterized the political divide as one between "good and evil".
In the past, he has branded the Democratic Party as "con artists" and "evil scum" who “deserve to die a traitor’s death."
Trump is yet to acknowledge Biden's presidential win in the 2020 election, claiming — without proof — the Democrats cheated him out of winning.
It was previously reported that the president told advisers that he will not leave the White House on Inauguration Day, CNN reported.
The Electoral College decisively confirmed Biden as the nation’s next president.
Electors gave him a solid majority of 306 electoral votes to Trump's 232, the same margin that Trump boasted was a landslide when he won the White House four years ago.
The Proud Boys have denounced the president-elect's victory.
