Joe Biden who has defeated Donald Trump in November 3 presidential elections has been sworn in as new US President earlier today.
Today on this January day, my whole soul is in this — bringing American people together, uniting our nation, and I ask every American to join me in this cause", Biden said in his inaugural speech.
Noting that there is no time to waste when it comes to tackling the crises we face, he said: "That's why today, I am heading to the Oval Office to get right to work delivering bold action and immediate relief for American families".
The time to move forward is now. pic.twitter.com/IrUUu0bxGO— President Biden (@POTUS) January 20, 2021
