Former Vice President Mike Pence was thrust into the spotlight during the final days of Donald Trump’s presidency. Now that the pair lost their reelection bid, though, what does Pence’s future hold? In this latest episode of The Point, CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains what’s next for Trump’s No. 2.
Ahead of US President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris oath taking ceremony, Former President Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary Clinton arrived at the US Capitol Hill. 43rd President of USA George W. Bush along with his wife arrived at the inauguration. Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama arrived at the US Capitol for Joe Biden's inauguration. US outgoing Vice President Mike Pence also arrived ahead of oath taking ceremony. Biden will be the 46th president of United States and Kamala Harris will be the first female and first black Vice President.
Donald Trump left the White House for the last time as US President on Wednesday, saying that this ‘is not a long term goodbye’ and ‘we will see each other again’.
Trump and First Lady Melania headed to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland, where the outgoing president spoke at a farewell event on a smaller scale than he had hoped for. In fact, his request for a huge military-style parade with crowds of supporters was rejected by the Pentagon.
It is not clear how many guests attended the event either, with Mike Pence deciding to skip it in order to attend Biden’s inauguration instead.
