Joe Biden to take oath as 46th US President today; security tightened
Joe Biden will take oath as the 46th President of the United States on Wednesday. Democrat Joe Biden defeated Republican Donald Trump in a closely-contested presidential election two months ago. Kamala Harris, the Indian American to be elected as vice president, will also take oath today.
Security has been beefed up in and around Capitol Hill, the place of the oath-taking ceremony. Only 200 people free from Covid-19, were permitted to attend the oath-taking ceremony. After the oath-taking event, the 78-yr-old Joe Biden will enter the White House amid the Military drum beating.
