Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony as the 46th President of the United States will take place on January 20th at the Capitol and will feature big stars from the entertainment industry but also a very important security deployment due to the recent attacks by Trump supporters to the Capitol facilities. Keep reading to find out more.
This inauguration and swearing-in ceremony for the next 4 years of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's in the main office is totally different from the previous ones.
To begin with, the security that will be deployed will be almost double than usual.
Regarding this, the Army Secretary, Ryan Mc Carthy, said on Sunday, noting that for fear of an attack by armed groups or explosives it has been decided to mount an unprecedented security device of 25,000 soldiers ready to guarantee that the ceremony of Inauguration is carried out without incidents.
"This is a national priority. We must be successful as an institution"
In addition to security, another different aspect of the inauguration ceremony of 2021 is the fact that the president who leaves office will not be present to hand over command to his successor, something that has not happened since 1869.
Donald Trump has already announced, according to The Washington Post, he will leave the White House on Wednesday before dark and will not attend Joe Biden's inauguration ceremony.
However, Vice President Mike Pence will be present.
Despite the turmoil, the past few weeks over the incidents at the Capitol, former President Trump has had time to feel upset about the call for great artists that his opponent and his successor Joe Biden has garnered.
While for his inauguration ceremony, Trump had a lot of trouble getting big names to make up the lineup of performers, Biden has gotten important entertainers like Lady Gaga, who will be singing the national anthem, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, Garth Brooks, Tom Hanks, and more celebrities.
Elton John, Moby, Garth Brooks, and Rebecca Ferguson refused to take part in the Donald Trump swearing in 2017, with Toby Keith, Lee Green-Wood, and 3 Doors Down being confirmed to perform.
Regarding the sea of flags that were installed at the National Mall, there are 19,500 and 56 pillars of light that represent American citizens who cannot travel to Washington to attend the event due to the Covid-19 pandemic that so far has infected almost 24 million people and has claimed the lives of more than 400,000.
Everything is ready so that January 20th is an unusual but safe and joyful day for our nation.
