Twenty-five thousand National Guard troops arrive in Washington, D.C., for President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration — two weeks after Trump-supporting extremists violently stormed the Capitol.
“Washington, D.C., looks like a city under occupation, a city that’s on the defensive, waiting for a potential attack. There is no visible enemy. It’s an enemy being ascertained through online chatter, through rumors. In reality, there’s no opposition in the streets, no militias, no Trump supporters. So it’s a bit surreal, all this defense against something that doesn’t physically exist at the moment.” —Photographer Ron Haviv
