Outgoing Vice President Mike Pence is present at the ceremony. Donald Trump refused to attend the ceremony, breaking a 150-year tradition, and left Washington a few hours before the celebrations. From the capital, he went to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. Before that, he said goodbye to his supporters and promised to return “in one form or another.”
US President-elect Joseph Biden, who will be inaugurated on January 20, is expected to prepare to reverse a number of decisions of his predecessor, Donald Trump, on the first day of his presidency. In particular, we are talking about the abolition of restrictions on the entry into the United States of citizens of a number of Muslim countries. In addition, Biden intends to return to the Paris climate agreement, from which Washington withdrew under Trump, as well as oblige citizens of the country to observe the mask regime when moving from one state to another.
