WASHINGTON, D.C. – Earlier today, the Inaugural Committee failed to pass a resolution formally acknowledging Joe Biden as president-elect after all Republicans opposed. The motion was offered by House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer. Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) were joined by House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy (CA-23) in blocking the motion, a move that effectively denied acknowledging that Biden is the President-elect.

“I move that the committee notify the American people that we are preparing for the inauguration of the 46th President of the United States, Joseph R. Biden Jr., and his Vice President, Kamala Harris, in coordination with the Biden Presidential Inaugural Committee and public health experts to ensure the health and safety of the American people as we observe this transition of power.”

The resolution failed 3-3.

Hoyer: Republicans' Rejection of JCCIC Motion Threatens American Democracy

While the Biden team is preparing for the swearing in ceremony to take place in its traditional spot on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol, it is expected to be a virtual inauguration for 80% of the festivities. In light of COVID, Biden says his inauguration will be a ‘more imaginative’ virtual event, in contrast to Trump’s large crowds.

According to an official who is believed to be involved in the planning, the Biden camp fears Trump fans may crash the inauguration ceremony in objection to his swearing in, or that Trump may hold his own rally on January 20, presumably in his home state of Florida.
