President Biden and Vice President Harris took the oath of office on the steps of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 20.
An inauguration like no other, the ceremony takes place amid the coronavirus pandemic and two weeks after pro-Trump rioters stormed the Capitol. The D.C. police chief has said that upwards of 20,000 National Guardsmen are expected to be in place throughout the city to guard against violence.
President Trump left Washington on the morning of Biden’s swearing-in, becoming the first modern-day president to skip his successor’s inauguration.
