Joe Biden’s daughter Ashley reveals she’s ‘worried’ for his safety at inauguration after Capitol riot in first interview

PRESIDENT-elect Joe Biden's elusive daughter Ashley has revealed she's "worried" for her dad's safety on Inauguration Day.

Speaking in her first-ever TV interview, which is set to air on Tuesday, Ashley Biden expressed her fears in the wake of the deadly Capitol riots.

Today's Jenna Bush Hager asked Biden's daughter if she was "scared for the safety of her loved ones."

"I think anybody you know that you love who's being threatened, yes, you worry," Ashley replied. "However, the Secret Service are incredible.

"The violence deeply saddens me. And it causes so much trauma."

Ashley admitted her fears following serious security concerns in the aftermath of the deadly US Capitol riots by Trump supporters.

The January 6 insurrection in Washington, DC, has ignited the vetting process of 25,000 National Guard troops.

Defense officials are reportedly worried about an insider attack from service members on January 20, 2021 - when Biden is set to take office.

During TODAY's exclusive interview, Ashley spoke alongside four of the president-elect's grandchildren.

According to the news outlet, they discussed Jill Biden's love for the 78-year-old incoming president, Joe Biden's journey in the presidential election, and the death of some family members.

Ashley recalled her family being "all-together" when they found out Biden was named the President-elect on November 7 - after he won the state of Pennsylvania.

"After the excitement and things just calmed down, I sat next to dad... held is hand and you know, I'm just so proud," the 39-year-old social worker said.

"I truly am proud of my father."

Ashley's fears come a the Capitol building was locked down on Monday and Biden's inauguration rehearsal was evacuated after a fire sparked a security threat.

Smoke was seen billowing from behind the US Capitol building during the frightening incident.

And thousands of heavily armed guns rights activists from across the country took to Virginia for an annual demonstration.

Right-wing extremists and members of the Boogaloo Boys movement were seen wielding assault rifles at the Monday protest.

Meanwhile, the FBI have been actively arresting Trump supporters who allegedly advocated and participated in the deadly Capitol riots.
