Trump wants ‘military style’ send off

The COVID Diaries – 267 16th January

It is being reported that Donald Trump is trying to arrange a ‘military-style’ send off when he flies to Palm Beach on the morning of his last day in office as president, enquiring about the possibility of a 21-gun salute and a fly past by the Air Force.

Meanwhile Republican Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is effectively allowing members of his party to vote to convict the US president, by telling colleagues to vote with their conscience during Trump’s impeachment hearing.
