He added that only with unity can we move forward.

New US President Joe Biden has said after taking the oath of office that the democracy has won.
he said that this is an American day. This is the day of democracy. This historic day has brought hope.
“The United States has had its share of difficulties, but its citizens have met that challenge. Today we are celebrating the victory of democracy, not the victory of one candidate.
Biden said a violent incident shook the foundations of the capital.
“We learned again that democracy is important. It’s weak … But we are united as one nation. We have ensured a peaceful transfer of power as in the last two decades.
Biden ran for president in 1987 and in 2008 in an attempt to elect for the presidential office. But despite these two efforts, Biden led the Democratic Party in the race for the presidency in 2020. Although Biden, 77, faced setbacks at the start of the race, his troubles eased on Super Tuesday, when he won 14 states.
As far as the presidential campaign is concerned, Biden’s campaign was “dull” compared to the Republican candidate, President Donald Trump, but he presented himself as a responsible candidate during the COVID-19 Pandemic who was cautious about the global pandemic.
The 55-year-old Democratic senator from California is not only the first female vice president but also the first non-white person to become the vice president of the United States due to her parents’ connection to Jamaica and India.
Kamala Harris’ mother was born in India while her father was born in Jamaica.
She is a former California attorney general and has been a staunch supporter of police reform during anti-apartheid protests.
Note that, strict security measures have been put in place in Washington, D.C., following the January 6 violence. On the other hand, Donald Trump has left the White House and before Biden’s inauguration, the entire area from Capitol Hill to the White House was turned into a red zone.
