Wind of panic in the White House. A few days before the inauguration of Joe Biden scheduled for January 20, tensions are more palpable than ever in the entourage of Donald Trump, now accused of having orchestrated the riots that occurred on the Capitol on January 6 with a call to the insurrection. Rarely violent facts from pro-Trump protesters, who have cascaded resignations from within the official office, while calls for Mike Pence to invoke the 25th Amendment to impeach the president are heard . What some believed to be real Monday, January 11.
Indeed, as several American media observed in the evening, the official website of the Secretary of State displayed the end of Donald Trump’s mandate on that date, more precisely at 7:48 p.m., thus suggesting that Melania Trump’s husband had left office earlier than expected. But if he does not plan to attend the inauguration of Joe Biden on January 20, the 45th President of the United States does not intend to give up his seat in the Oval Office faster than expected, he who still has not recognized his defeat. Indeed, Buzzfeed reports that this change in Donald Trump’s biographies is the result of a “disgruntled employee” at the State Department.

An orderly internal investigation
According to the news site, Mike Pence’s biographical page was also changed to announce the end of the vice-president’s term. A few hours later, the site displayed a “404 reading”, claiming: “We’re sorry, this site is currently experiencing technical difficulties. Please try again in a few moments.” For his part, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo ordered an internal investigation to discover the author of this manipulation, in particular among interns and other people who will soon leave the State Department.
