Words on the street is revealing that the 46th President maybe ditching the typical flourish of arriving in Washington on an Air Force plane, pulling in instead on the same Amtrak train he rode to and from Delaware for 30 years as a senator.
A train trip would be very on-brand for “Amtrak Joe.” It also would mirror Barack Obama, who rode into Washington on a vintage railcar in January 2009.
Sources involved in the planning told us that Biden plans to forgo the traditional inaugural balls and parades because of the coronavirus, choosing instead to celebrate with close family and advisers.
Both Donald Trump and George W. Bush came to D.C. on the Air Force version of a Boeing 757. While not the bigger 747 that ferries a president as Air Force One, the planes gave a preview of coming attractions. They were emblazoned in the presidential blue-and-white paint job and the words “United States of America.”
It will be awesome to see the 46th President of the United States Joe Biden arrives to Washington DC on January 20th on Amtrak train, we all know how Joe cherished Amtrak.
