Joe Biden sworn in as 46th U.S. President – 20th January

After one of the most controversial elections in history, Joe Biden was officially sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America.

The former Vice President declared that Democracy had prevailed before adding that,  “On this hallowed ground where, just a few days ago, violence sought to shake the Capitol’s very foundation, we come together as one nation, under God, indivisible, to carry out the peaceful transfer of power as we have for more than two centuries”.

Many believe that Biden will now have to repair what many called a “fractured” country as many Americans continue to be aligned with Donald Trump and his claims of a rigged election.

Biden will now become the oldest President in the history of the country.
