Trump Declares State of Emergency in Washington

Donald Trump has approved a state of emergency declaration in the United States capital, the White House press office said late on Monday, after US law enforcement officials warned of threats before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration.
     The order authorises federal assistance to be extended through January 24 to support efforts in Washington, DC to respond to the emergency situation.
     Specifically, it allows the Federal Emergency Management Agency to “identify, mobilise and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency”.
