The United States President-elect, Joe Biden has adopted “America United” as his inaugural theme, as he prepares to take over from Trump come 20th January 2020.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced the America United’ theme on Monday, which is them drawing from a core pillar of their campaign that has now grown more poignant in light of the violent riot on Capitol Hill.

The committee also announced that one of Biden’s first acts as President, along with Vice President-elect Kamala Harris and their spouses, will be to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery, “honouring our men and women in uniform who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our common values.”

In a show of bipartisanship, they will be joined by former Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, as well as former first ladies Michelle Obama, Laura Bush and Hillary Clinton, all of whom will attend the inauguration on January 20.

“This inauguration marks a new chapter for the American people — one of healing, of unifying, of coming together, of an America united,” said Tony Allen, the committee’s chief executive officer.

 “It is time to turn the page on this era of division. The inaugural activities will reflect our shared values and serve as a reminder that we are stronger together than we are apart, just as our motto ‘e pluribus unum’ reminds us — out of many, one.”

President Donald Trump announced he will not attend the ceremony. A source with knowledge says first lady Melania Trump is also not expected to attend, joining her husband as they leave Washington the day before for their Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, though the source cautioned that plans could change.

Vice President Mike Pence will attend the inauguration, according to a source familiar with the plans.
