January 19th – On the 20th local time, Biden will be officially sworn in as President of the United States.
However, due to the recent outbreak of congressional unrest in the United States and the severity of the epidemic, the scale of this year’s inauguration of the President of the United States will be greatly reduced. U.S. media said that this will be an inauguration ceremony that has never been seen in American history.
In the context of a global “pandemic,” Biden will be sworn in in front of a sparse crowd and engage in unprecedented military mobilization in Washington, D.C., according to the U.S. Capitol Hill.
At the inauguration of the President of the United States in the past, the government will distribute 200,000 tickets, but this year it has been reduced to about 1,000, and only the participants include congressmen, former presidents and dignitaries.
In addition, on the day of inauguration, Washington, D.C., will have 21,000 National Guard soldiers stationed, the military has built a “green area” around the Capitol, and workers fenced with barbed wire.
“The atmosphere of the inauguration has been dim since the American Congress building was sacked.” U.S. media believe that the congressional turmoil once again exposed the deep political rift in the United States, and also increased the challenges Biden will face.
