Welcome, and thanks for tuning in to the Global News live special covering Inauguration day in Washington, D.C., where on Wednesday Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be sworn in as the next president and vice-president of the United States.
Outgoing president Donald Trump has said he will not be in attendance, making it a first for a president in more than 150 years.
It will be a historic and tense start to the Biden-Harris administration. Americans were already being asked to watch the ceremony from home instead of attending in person due to the coronavirus pandemic. But the riot at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month — along with reports that more armed protests and violence are being planned — has led to enhanced security in Washington along with the public health measures.
