Joe Biden, Kamala Harris arrive at US Capital to take oath

 

President- elect Joseph R. Biden will take the oath of office alongwith vice- president elect Kamala Devi Harris in a scaled-back inauguration ceremony in Washington that has been largely stripped of its usual pomp and circumstance, due both to the coronavirus as well as security concerns following the January 6 assault on the US Capitol by Trump supporters.

Republican President Donald Trump left the White House on Wednesday with his wife Melania and went by helicopter to a sendoff event at Joint Air Force Base Andrews, where he promised supporters “we’ll be back in some form” and extolled his administration’s successes before flying off to Florida.
