This is an unprecedented investiture that takes place in Washington D.C., Wednesday, January 20, 2021.

After weeks of refuting his defeat, Donald Trump finally packed his bags to fly to his second home in Florida … closely followed by family members, including Tiffany Trump and her new fiancé. It was therefore in an empty presidential residence, and in front of flags for the public, that Joe Biden was sworn in. The ceremony is scheduled for around 6 p.m. (French time). But of course the 46th President of the United States and his allies arrived early. His vice-president Kamala Harris was sworn in a few minutes before him.
