A rehearsal for US President-elect Joe Biden‘s inauguration has been postponed due to security concerns. It was scheduled to take place on Sunday.

According to the report, the rehearsal is not scheduled for Monday.

Moreover, Biden’s team had also canceled the Amtrak trip from Wilmington to Washington because of the heightened security concerns. The trip was planned for Monday. Biden will be inaugurated on January 20 (Wednesday).

The presidential inaugural committee has declined to comment on the report.

According to the details, Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray had said earlier that FBI was looking into people who possibly could threaten the safety of the inaugurations.

Biden has asked Lisa Monaco, his nominee for deputy attorney general and former President Barack Obama’s counter-terrorism adviser, to serve as a homeland security adviser on a temporary basis for the inauguration.

Officials have warned of plans for armed protests in Washington after Trump’s supporters stormed the US Capitol leaving five dead.
