A matter of days ahead of the inauguration of U.S. President-elect Joe Biden, all fifty states are on alert.
In Washington, Capitol Hill and surrounding areas have been transformed into a sea of barricades, roadblocks, and armored trucks.
The Pentagon has deployed more than 20-thousand National troops three times the combined number of U.S. troops deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Syria.
This comes as there are concerns over armed and potentially violent protests by Trump supporters who believe fraud robbed the president of a second term.
Despite the concern, there were no immediate reports of violence on Sunday most streets remaining empty around many other capitols.
