The National Guard has ordered 25,000 troops in Washington to secure the new government’s inauguration after supporters of former President Donald Trump stormed the Capitol on January 6.

However, the City of Washington and the government were not prepared to receive so many soldiers. During the days, images began to circulate on the net of soldiers who were forced to spend the night in various underground garages and other unworthy locations between service periods.

Because of the circumstances, many MPs and governors spoke.

President Joe Biden phoned the National Guard office on Friday to apologize and offer to help the government resolve the situation quickly.

First lady Jill Biden was reported to have personally met the soldiers on duty and also presented them with a cake to express their gratitude for their work.

On Thursday, several pictures of Twitter and other social media platforms were inundated with hundreds of soldiers lying in different garage buildings. (BBC)
