President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden, along with members of their family and security officials, left the presidential motorcade to walk along Washington, D.C.’s 15th Street — what would have normally been the inaugural parade route — and then to the White House. The first couple and their family walked into the executive mansion after “Hail to the Chief” was played. The 46th president’s inauguration comes amid a global pandemic that has modified inauguration traditions, and in the aftermath of an attack on the U.S. Capitol by pro-Trump extremists.
