The inauguration of Joe Biden as President of the United States is taking place today amidst an unprecedented deployment of security forces. More than 25,000 troops are present to guarantee the public safety and order, in the wake of the assault on Congress incited by the incendiary rhetoric of Donald Trump. The exiting President is not attending the ceremony, something that has not occurred since 1869, and the number of participating guests has been significantly reduced due to the pandemic.
