Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America with Kamala Harris as Vice President.
Their ceremony took place on the West Front of the U.S. Capitol which was heavily guarded by National Guardsmen.
Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was the one who presided over Biden’s swearing-in ceremony while it was Justice Sonia Sotomayor who sworn in Harris.
For his inauguration speech, Biden addressed the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and how his administration will respond to it.
“My fellow Americans, in the work ahead of us, we’re going to need each other. We must finally meet this pandemic as one nation. We will get through this together — together,” said Biden.
Biden also referenced the Capitol insurrection last January 6 and said that “it will never happen. Not today. Not tomorrow. Not ever. Not ever.”
Biden reassured those that did not vote for him that he would still fight for them just as he would for his supporters and called for unity among Americans.
“I will be a president for all Americans, all Americans,” said Biden.
