Trump indicated early Friday he would not be in attendance when President-elect Joe Biden is sworn into office.

"There's been a long historic tradition of passing the torch from president to president and I feel as though Trump has dropped that torch and it's not for him to pick it up. It's for us to pick it up," said Quentin Wedderburn, a Georgia resident.

Others were not surprised by the week's developments.

"Why would I be surprised? This is what the president has been stoking all along. And this is just the natural turn of events that would happen when a leader riles up his crowd," said Ratib Habbal, a Michigan resident.
