President Trump declares a state of emergency in Washington

President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris will be inaugurated next week

President Trump has declared a state of emergency for Washington, D.C., that will last through Jan. 24. The White House announced the announcement after authorities warned of security threats during President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration next week.

Also, President Trump and Vice President Pence met at the White House Monday night and “had a good talk.” This was reported by Reuters, citing a senior White House official.

The meeting between the president and vice president came amid reports of strained relations between the two following last week’s attack by Trump supporters on the Capitol.
