President-elect Joe Biden is still planning to take his oath of office on the west side of the U.S. Capitol Wednesday despite growing concerns over safety for the event, incoming White House Communication Director Kate Bedingfield said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”
Bedingfield said that doing so would reflect American “resilience” following the deadly riot at the Capitol earlier this month, when a pro-Trump mob violently forced its way into the building.
Bedingfield also provided a glimpse of what may be in Biden’s inaugural address. She didn’t get into specifics, but her expectations mirrored those of other advisers, who anticipate Biden will call for unity and “lay out a positive, optimistic vision for the country.”
