Missouri Senator Roy Blunt is one of the people involved in planning Wednesday’s Presidential Inauguration ceremony in Washington.
Blunt says it’s important to show the world that America can carry out inaugurations similar to what it’s done every four years since the 1700’s.
He says plans were to have a smaller crowd than usual even before this month’s rioting at the U.S. Capitol.
Blunt is the chairman of the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies.
He was the first to introduce President Trump after the swearing-in ceremony in 2017.
Joseph R. Biden, Jr. is being sworn in at 11:00 a.m. CST as the 46th President of the United States.
