Summary

There are major concerns about security for inauguration following the pro-Trump Capitol siege on January 6, which led to five deaths and sent shockwaves through the nation.The fact there will be more troops in DC than the two countries that have in many ways been the primary battlegrounds of the US government's global war on terror is a stark reminder that homegrown extremism poses a greater threat to the US than foreign terrorism. As the New America think tank puts it: "Far from being foreign infiltrators, the large majority of jihadist terrorists in the United States have been American citizens or legal residents."The events of January 6, which Biden as well as many congressional lawmakers and experts have described as domestic terrorism, could mark an inflection point in terms of how the US approaches extremism.A mostly white, pro-Trump mob filled with members or sympathizers of far right extremist groups stormed the US Capitol with apparent intentions of doing harm to lawmakers and even Vice President Mike Pence.
