Washington, D.C. has been secured by 25,000 National Guard troops this week in preparation for the inauguration of President-Elect Joe Biden Wednesday. The security concerns increased after a January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

The riot took place after President Donald Trump spoke to his supporters and encouraged them to make their voices heard in front of the Capitol as Congress was certifying the Electoral College results, making Joe Biden the President-Elect.

Rioters then broke windows, entered and looted the building. The chaos resulted in 5 deaths.

Trump later clarified that he was encouraging a peaceful protest and condemned the violence.

Since then, the city has been on high alert as National Guardsmen from dozens of states pour in to assure a peaceful event.

However, amid concerns of potential violence, a number of schools across the country have reportedly opted to not show students the live inauguration ceremony.

That includes the Keller Independent School District in Dallas, Texas, which is allowing parents to excuse their students from class during the live stream, according to the Dallas Morning News.

According to the Bangor Daily News, the Bangor School Department in Maine says it won’t show the event to students “due to the threat of potential violence.”

New York’s Ossining Union Free School District in New York won’t show the inauguration to “ensure the social and emotional well-being of our students,” according to a letter from the school district’s superintendent.

On Monday, former President Donald Trump once again took to his social media platform Truth to keep the public apprised on his life. “Wow, in the raid by the FBI on Mar-a-Lago, they stole my three Passports (one expired), along with everything else.”

Daily Mail reports that Trump likely had not only a U.S. citizens passport, but also a red colored ‘diplomatic’ passport issued for official government travel when he was President. “If true, he cannot leave the country” adds Daily Mail.

“This is an assault on a political opponent at a level never before seen in our country. Third World” Trump wrote.

Trump told Fox News Digital that he offered to do “whatever he can” to fix the simmering tensions because people are “So angry at what is taking place.”

“People are so angry at what is taking place,” Trump told Fox when asked about reaching out. “Whatever we can do to help—because the temperature has to be brought down in the country. If it isn’t, terrible things are going to happen.”

He added: “The people of this country are not going to stand for another scam.”

Daily Mail reports that Federal law enforcement agencies are warning of ‘an increase in threats and acts of violence’ directed at FBI personnel after agents executed a search warrant on Trump’s Florida home.

Trump also told Fox News Digital that he had his representatives reach out to the DOJ to offer assistance as outrage in his base ensues over the FBI’s raid on his private residence.
