President Donald Trump said he would not attend Biden's swearing-in, which would make him the first outgoing president to skip his replacement's inauguration in more than 150 years.

Among those present at Wednesday's ceremony include three former presidents and their wives - President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President George W. Bush and Laura Bush, and President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, as well as Vice President Mike Pence and former Vice President Dan Quayle.

After Harris and Biden take their oaths of office Wednesday, President-elect Biden will deliver an inaugural address on his plans for the country and the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
