Agency. Newly elected US President Joy Biden is scheduled to take the oath of office on Wednesday and will also take on nuclear football. The 45-pound briefcase, uniquely used to command and control the country’s vast nuclear arsenal, is always with the president.
During the briefcase handover ceremony, a military aide will stand with the President carrying a briefcase. They will be in the process of preparing for the choreography of skilled pre-practice command and control. According to the Smithsonian magazine, formally known as the President’s Emergency Sachal, it is housed in a strong aluminum frame wrapped in black leather.
However, according to the magazine, there is no red button to press for the purpose of announcing the start of nuclear war, as shown in the movies. According to American historical tradition, the bag has always been handed over by the outgoing president to the newly sworn in president.
But for the first time, Donald Trump has decided not to hand over the bag to Joy Biden. Trump’s plans to stay in Florida during Biden’s swearing-in ceremony in Washington D.C. are set to change the nuclear ‘football’ handover program. This will be the first time in the nuclear age that the incumbent US president has not attended the inauguration of his successor.
According to a senior US official, a military official with a similar football will travel to Florida with Trump. Trump will have the sole right to launch a nuclear attack on Wednesday night at 11:59:59 p.m. Although Trump is physically out of Washington, he is said to have that right.
Trump’s troops will return to Washington after another military aide provided Biden with a second nuclear power during his swearing-in. However, the White House declined to comment further, citing security concerns. In a 2013 documentary produced by Discovery Channel, former Vice President Dick Cheney revealed for the first time about nuclear football, which is often kept secret.
