The United State of America will soon have a new President and Vice President. Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President of the USA, while Indian-origin politician Kamala Harris will take oath as the 49th Vice President of the country. Kamala will become the first woman Vice President of the USA, report agencies.
The Inauguration Day 2021 will happen as the country is going through a disturbing period of time after the storming of US Capitol by the supporters of 45th POTUS, Donald Trump. Security measures have been taken by the authorities to organise a scaled-down Inauguration Day keeping in mind the violence on January 6 that killed five people. Tuesday is President Donald Trump’s last full day in the White House.

Before noon, Kamala is expected to be sworn in as the Vice President by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. Immediately after that, Biden will be sworn in as the President by Chief Justice John Roberts.
After the swearing-in, in order to signify the peaceful transfer of power, Biden and Kamala will complete the transitional ‘Pass in Review’ inspection of troops.
