WASHINGTON – Hopes are rekindled as a new administration gets enforced following the much anticipated January 20, 2021 inauguration. Joe R. Biden and Kamala Harris take oaths of office as President and Vice President of the United States of America.
The inauguration oath ceremony was restricted to a limited number of invitees amid heightened security concerns and Covid-19.
The ceremony took place with no security issues, despite the deployment of over 25000 members of the National Guard across the entire vicinity of the event.
Last two weeks, the nation witnessed a mob of pro-Trump supporters who violently invaded the Capitol seeking to overturn Senate’s confirmation of Joe Biden as president.
