Celebrations will be much ‘smaller’ due to COVID-19 according to Biden when he urged his supporters to not travel to Washington, D.C. In hopes. The upcoming administration wanted virtual parades on Pennsylvania Avenue, but they were later scrapped.
On Wednesday, Trump held a Rally where he told his supporters to march to the Capitol. It turned ugly when protestors were allegedly let in by Capitol Police putting a halt to the Electoral College Certification for Joe Biden.
Due to Nancy Pelosi who is trying to impeach the President, creating a security risk of another war, Trump accordingly defended his acts of going to the Inauguration to celebrate the transition.
