Will Donald Trump be there?
Mr Trump has done nothing to make the path to Inauguration Day simple for Mr Biden, and the likelihood he will attend the ceremony appears increasingly doubtful.
If Mr Trump declines to attend on January 20, he will break a decades-long tradition. Usually, the person departing the White House would welcome their predecessor to the Oval Office and attend the swearing-in ceremony.
Both Mr Biden and Barack Obama attended Mr Trump’s inauguration on January 20, 2017. The president’s Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton was also present, as were former presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.
On the subject of Trump’s attendance, Mr Blunt, who is the chair of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies shared that he is “confident” he will see “both Vice President Biden and President Trump on the stage on Inaugural Day”. He then went on to highlight how that would be a “powerful message, no matter which and that will be a powerful message, no matter which one of them is sworn in.”
How will the coronavirus impact inauguration plans?
This time the ceremony could also break traditions because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The US has seen the worst outbreak in the world, recording more deaths and cases than any other country.
Festivities are likely to be scaled back, with public health measures including mandatory mask-wearing, temperature checks and social distancing in place.
