Joe Biden becomes the 46th president of the United States

Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, marking the beginning of a new administration at a time when the nation remains polarized and facing a health emergency as coronavirus has killed more than 400,000 Americans.

“This is America’s day. This is democracy’s day. A day of history and hope, of renewal and resolve,” Biden said in his inaugural address.

“This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge. And unity is the path forward. And we must meet this moment as the United States of America. If we do that, I guarantee you we will not fail.”

Tweeting from the official account, President Joe Biden wrote that: “There is no time to waste when it comes to tackling the crises we face.”

Biden, 78, previously served as vice president under Barack Obama and spent decades representing Delaware in the U.S. Senate.
