Washington, DC starts security lockdown ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration

Security is ramping up in Washington, D.C., for next week’s inauguration of Joe Biden as president.

Members of the National Guard are posted inside and outside of the U.S. Capitol, and on the streets surrounding it. As many as 20,000 troops are expected to arrive in the coming days – the most ever deployed there.

Presidential inaugurations are usually patriotic displays of the peaceful transition of power. But as Jackson Proskow reports, this time the goal is simply to get through it without any violence.
