Biden is 'not afraid' & Trump approves EMERGENCY declaration ahead of inauguration protest fears.

PRESIDENT Trump issued a dramatic emergency declaration for Washington D.C amid fears of violent clashes in the run-up to Joe Biden's inauguration on January 20.

The president on Monday ordered federal agencies to provide assistance to local law enforcement as fears of violence continue to mount after Trump supporters stormed into the nation's Capitol last week.

President-elect Joe Biden squashed danger concerns about the inauguration being held outside in light of security stemming from last week's attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Biden responded, "I'm not afraid of taking the oath outside."

The FBI has warned of possible armed protests being planned for Washington, D.C., and at all 50 U.S. state capital cities in the run-up to President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Jan. 20, a federal law enforcement source said on Monday.

Faced with threats of move violence from supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump, the National Guard was authorized to send up to 15,000 troops to Washington, and tourists were barred from visiting the Washington Monument.

Biden's inaugural committee said on Monday the theme of the Jan. 20 ceremony will be "America United," even as the country grapples with the fallout of last Wednesday's storming of the Capitol by Trump loyalists.
