Washington DC prepares for Biden inauguration amid tight security .On Wednesday 20 January 2021, the eyes of the whole world will be on the official inauguration of Joe Biden at the White House. Biden will swear on a family Bible, kept by his wife Jill, while Harris has chosen two bibles, one by Regina Shelton and one by Thurgood Marshall (civil rights icon). Biden will swear before John Roberts, president of the supreme court, Harris instead before Sonia Sotomayor, the first Hispanic judge at the supreme court.

The latter’s slogan was “Make America Great Again”. On the eve of the inauguration of the 46th president of the United States, 200,000 American flags were lined up on the National Mall, to represent American citizens who will not be able to be present at the oath of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the anti Covid-19 restrictions do not allow.
