Professor Emeritus William C. Banks says that only once in U.S. history, just after the Civil War, has a departing president not attended the inauguration. "The ceremony will also be dramatically affected by the pandemic, and by the extraordinary security necessitated by the attack on the Capitol on Jan 6," he says. Banks was quoted in the China Daily article, "Capital prepared, tense for inauguration."
