    US POLITICS: Will Inauguration day become violent?

    US POLITICS: Will Inauguration day become violent?

    When Joe Biden is sworn in this week it will be one of the most unusual Inauguration ceremonies in history.

      

    The FBI has warned that armed protests by violent Trump supporters were being planned in all 50 state capitals as well as in Washington for the days leading up to the inauguration.

      

    To find out how tight security will be and what the risk of more violence is we’re joined by US politics reporter for the Sydney Morning Herald and the Age Matthew Knott

     

    Have we learned why they were incapable of the mob storming the capital and confident we’ll get it right this time? How likely is it we’ll see violence from pro Trump extremists? A number of protesters have been locked up, what are they actually facing and will it reduce the risk this week? What normally happens at the Inauguration? How quickly will there be a noticeable change once Biden takes office? Trump has been impeached again, does it give him a reason to keep fighting? Does the Senate trial have to happen for him to not be President again? Will the Inauguration bring a new sense of moving forward for America?

    Australian Open in chaos with fifth COVID-19 case
    Australia probing Norway deaths following Pfizer vaccine
    Unvaccinated patrons could be banned from NSW pubs and clubs
    Australia leads by 54 runs heading into day four of the fourth test

    2020 dictionary with Dom Knight

    2020 has been a year. We really thought the January bushfires were going to be the worst of it, but then came floods, a recession, and a global pandemic. It’s been so bad that it can be difficult to put into words.

     

    Except that someone has. Writer, radio presenter and Chaser co-founder Dom Knight has written the 2020 Dictionary: The Definitive Guide to the Year the Planet Turned to Shit. Dom joins us for our final daily episode as we look back on the year of 2020.

     

    In today's headlines:
    Christmas chaos as Northern Beaches cluster explodes
    States move to lock out NSW, Sydney
    Melbourne’s public tower lockdowns “breached human rights”
    Dramatic first day in the big summer test cricket series
