U.S. Rep. Alcee Hastings is boycotting Friday's inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump. The Democrat, whose district includes parts of West Palm Beach and the Glades, said he's refusing to attend because of what he calls the "demagoguery that continues to define the incoming administration."
He said he was not protesting the election results.
Hastings has been a member of Congress since 1993.
The following is the statement released by Hastings' office.
