The trend has captured the notice of many netizens and an Indian named Prayag Tiwari maybe after it. Just before his swearing-in, Biden had tweeted, “It’s a new day in America.”To this, Twitter user Prayag Tiwari replied, “Joe Biden is not my President.”When someone asked him if he’s a Trump supporter, Tiwari simply said, “No I am from India.”

Meantime, Biden has carefully moved it to the White House in a barricaded city shielded by more than 25,000 troops and devoid of the hundreds of thousands of onlookers who regularly throng to the quadrennial ritual. The unprecedented precautions assured the new US president and Vice President Kamala Harris took office free of the incident in a ceremony outside the US Capitol, two weeks to the day after a mob attacked the building in a failed endeavor to keep Congress from certifying their victory.
Some right-wing extremist groups had pledged to intrude Biden’s inauguration following the Jan. 6 attack, but only widespread demonstrations appeared on Wednesday. The US Secret Service, which ran the security operation, reported one arrest, a person who attempted to access a checkpoint to a restricted area near the White House carrying loose, unregistered ammunition. DC Police and Capitol Police reported no arrests.
