Rehearsal For Biden Inauguration Postponed Amid Security Threats

Rehearsal For Biden Inauguration Postponed Amid Security Threats”

"Ms. Monaco will assist the President-elect and work with the incoming national security advisor, the incoming homeland security advisor, and current security and law enforcement officials, including with the United States Secret Service on their plans for the inauguration", a spokesperson for the transition told Politico in a statement. The decision to forgo the 90-minute Amtrak ride from Wilmington to Washington was likely not easy for Biden, whose preference for taking the train during his 36-year Senate career was such a central part of his public persona that he rode it home on his final day as vice president in 2017.

Security in Washington has ramped up considerably in preparation for the inauguration after the violent insurrection at the U.S. Capitol last week by supporters of President Trump, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned of plans for armed protests in all 50 state capitals and Washington in the days leading up to the event.

More than 20,000 National Guard troops are expected to be in Washington, D.C., for next Wednesday's inaugural ceremonies, while much of the city has been under tight security since last week's attack. Beaman also worked with Biden's late son, Beau, who served Delaware's former attorney general before his death in 2015.

The prime-time special, that will take place on the evening on January 20, will also include John Legend, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and the previously announced Jon Bon Jovi, Tom Hanks, Justin Timberlake and Demi Lovato.

The special will feature performances from Jon Bon Jovi, Justin Timberlake, Demi Lovato, and Ant Clemons, with other performers still to come. Lady Gaga is set to sing the national anthem while Jennifer Lopez will perform a musical number. Tom Hanks is the host, and according to the Presidential Inaugural Committee, the special will showcase "the American people's resilience, heroism and unified commitment to coming together as a nation to heal and rebuild".
