President Donald Trump enters his final full day in office
BBC, 19 Jan 2021
President-elect Joe Biden will take office at around midday on Wednesday, although much of the spotlight is on Donald Trump's final moves, including presidential pardons.
Security is intense in Washington DC ahead of the inauguration ceremony. Thousands of National Guard reserve soldiers have been deployed in the wake of the storming of the US Capitol building that left five people dead.
The FBI had earlier warned of possible protests across the nation by right-wing extremists emboldened by the invasion.
