The inauguration will take place a week after the House of Representatives voted on the charges against President Donald Trump following the Capitol riot. He is the first US president to be charged twice.

President Trump said he would not be in attendance to summon Biden, which will happen in person, but with limited guests in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to the Washington Post, the Presidential Inauguration Committee granted admission tickets to the ceremony to lawmakers who are permitted to attend and a select group of people. Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton will be among the participants along with their wives.
