The 2020 US election was an election like no other. Amidst a deadly pandemic, economic recession and a racial reckoning, Americans voted in record numbers with Joe Biden declared as 46th President of the United States. Now that US congress has formally approves Biden's victory, thoughts turn towards the Presidential Inauguration taking place later this month and what happens next.
