Biden arrives at the White House
President Joe Biden arrived at the White House on Wednesday afternoon for the first time since taking office.
Biden stepped out of the presidential limousine at close to 4 p.m. in front of the U.S. Treasury building to walk to the north side of the White House, accompanied by his family and Vice President Kamala Harris. His arrival followed a muted and solemn procession from Arlington National Cemetery, which did not include the usual crowd of cheering spectators due to security concerns and coronavirus precautions.
Biden’s arrival preceded a virtual “Parade Across America” celebration — also modified due to the pandemic — featuring celebrities, Olympic athletes and artists. Actor and “Scandal” star Tony Goldwyn will host the remote event.
The White House was deep cleaned before Biden’s arrival on Wednesday.
