Joe Biden officially becomes President of the United States
Democrat leader Joe Biden has officially taken charge as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday. Twitter has also welcomed the newly-elected president after banning his predecessor Donald Trump for his controversial claims of ‘election fraud’ and his role in Jan 6 Capitol riots.
“I will be a president for all Americans,” said Joe Biden as he took oath as the US president.
Right after holding his post, the president revoked Trump’s travel ban on some Muslim countries – also known as Muslim Ban. Similarly Trump’s policies regarding global health body and climate change were also reversed.
According to a news report: Under President Biden, the 1776 Commission, an advisory committee devoted to supporting “patriotic education” that critics said was revisionist whitewashing, has been dissolved. At the same time, Biden called on the federal government strive to eliminate systemic discrimination within its agencies.
“The ‘100-day mask challenge’ also introduced by the new administration will encourage Americans to wear face coverings for 100 days in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19,” the report added.
“We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts, if we show a little tolerance and humility and we’re willing to stand in the other person’s shoes,” President Biden while addressing his inauguration ceremony.
“Together we shall write an American story of hope, not fear, of unity, not division, of light, not darkness. A story of decency and dignity, love and healing and goodness.” he further said.
President Biden offered a message of unity and restoration to a deeply divided nation and promised to heal the country fighting from coronavirus pandemic that has killed 400,000 Americans so far.
