President Donald Trump has approved a state of emergency for Washington, DC, which ‘coincidentally’ covers date of US President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20.

The move comes less than a week after protesters loyal to President Trump stormed the Capitol, halting Congress’s counting of the electoral votes to confirm President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory as the police evacuated lawmakers from the building. The incident left many dead and several others injured.

Trump’s state of emergency declaration was in response to a letter sent to Trump on Sunday by Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser, who already declared a 15-day public emergency for the city shortly after pro-Trump demonstrators stormed the US Capitol

Today, President Donald J. Trump declared that an emergency exists in the district of Columbia and ordered Federal assistance to supplement the district’s response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from the 59th Presidential Inauguration from January 11 to 24, 2021,” the office of the white house press secretary said in a statement on Monday.

The emergency declaration authorizes the department of homeland security and the federal emergency management agency (FEMA) to coordinate all disaster relief efforts with the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the district of Columbia.
