President Donald Trump left the White House for the last time on Wednesday morning, as President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris are set to be inaugurated at noon. The past few weeks have been as chaotic as any of the Trump era, from the signing of a new COVID relief bill to a deadly riot at the Capitol Building incited by the president to a slow start for vaccinations as cases spike and unemployment numbers soar.
Biden enters an even more precarious situation than former president Barack Obama did in 2009, and he will need to act quickly to stabilize the economy and the country at large. But before he signs an executive order or starts pushing for Congress to pass legislation, Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris will be sworn in at 12:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, January 20th by Chief Justice John Roberts, which you can watch live above.
