A report suggesting that President Donald Trump may be traveling to Scotland the day before the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden has been downplayed by the White House, Fox News reported on Tuesday.
Scotland’s Sunday Post reported that speculation surrounding Trump’s plans are based on sources saying that Prestwick airport has been told to expect on Jan. 19, the day before the inauguration, the arrival of a U.S. military Boeing 757 aircraft that is sometimes used by Trump.
In addition, U.S. Army aircraft that were based at Prestwick airport for a week were said to be conducting 3D reconnaissance of Trump's Turnberry resort.
But deputy White House press secretary Judd Deere told Fox News that "Anonymous sources who claim to know what the president is or is not considering have no idea. When President Trump has an announcement about his plans for January 20. he will let you know."
Trump, who insists that his loss in the election was due to widespread voter fraud, has not informed White House aides whether he will go to Biden’s inauguration.
Business Insider reported that there is speculation that Trump could instead host an event at the same time as the inauguration in order to attract attention.
Such a rival event could include Trump addressing supporters at a rally or announcing a presidential run in 2024.
