Maryland Congressman Jamie Raskin says he will not join fellow progressive Democrats in boycotting the inauguration of President-Elect Donald Trump.

He told the Baltimore Sun that he saw this as his constitutional duty to attend.

The Takoma Park Democrat added he did not view this as support for Trump’s programs.

His fellow Democrat representative Anthony Brown has announced he will not attend the ceremonies while Representative Elijah Cummings has said he has not decided yet.

The number of lawmakers who have pledged not to attend increased after Trump lashed out at Democratic U.S. Rep. John Lewis of Georgia on Saturday for challenging Trump's legitimacy to be the next president.
