Joe Biden's Inauguration from 3am Thursday 21 January Sydney, Australia time will be screened live on SBS TV. The actual swearing-in occurs at 12noon Washington time, Wednesday 20 January.
Trump has organised 2 distractions hours before the Inauguration:
1. A military parade at nearby Andrews Air Force Base (see map below) to which a Trumpster crowd is invited. The crowd are due to assemble from 11.15pm (Sydney Time) Wednesday 20 January. Trump may well do more crowd incitement. Trump's timing allows several hours for this crowd to travel to central Washington, to do their worst during the Noon (US time) Inauguration. As Andrews Air Base is about 15 miles southeast of the Inauguration at the Capitol Building Trumpsters could even start a riot distraction within the Andrews area itself.
During Trump’s 6 January Insurrection many Trumpters appeared to have military training in coordinated action. So riots drawing the attention of security forces (Secret Service, FBI, National Guard and police) may be coordinated with more deadly shooting and bombing incidents.

2. Instead of attending the Inauguration (as is customary) Trump will fly from Andrews Air Base to one of his palaces, just north of Miami Florida. This will establish an alibi before the likely riot in Washington. It is also possible Trump may incite a crowd in the Miami area.
Additional scenarios to Trumpster violence in/around Washington are Trumpster Riots of Opportunity in US State Capitals and other major US cities. These may happen while most US security attention is focused on Washington.
If any violence happens this will dominate Aussie morning news, on Thursday 21 January. The most sustained reporting for us, is likely to be "ABC America World News" 12.30pm Sydney time, on SBS TV. This will be immediately followed, at 1pm, by "PBS NewsHour" on SBS TV.
Here's hoping nothing violent happens.
