Secret Service is in charge of security at the US Capitol ahead of President Biden's first address to a joint session of Congress tomorrow.
There will be very few people inside the Capitol compared to a regular Presidential address and security will be higher than usual. The building is still surrounded by a high metal fence behind which are 2,500 National Guard Troops.
According to Reuters "District of Columbia authorities have asked the Pentagon to authorize the district’s National Guard contingent to help local police handle any anti-Biden protests coinciding with Wednesday’s address."
Meanwhile the D.C. National Guard said in a statement: “The D.C. National Guard is prepared to support D.C. law enforcement, pending approval” - that would be by acting Army Secretary John Whitley.
So what do you think? Will there be violence?
