20 January 2021 – Joe Biden is sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America after beating Donald Trump in the 2020 US election. His election will hopefully signal a time of change for US politics and environmental causes.
President, Joe Biden declared to the American people that “Democracy had prevailed.”
As Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris were sworn in at the US Capitol, the former President Donald Trump was conspicuously absent travelling on Air Force one to Florida.
However, former presidents and previous Vice President Mike Pence attended the inauguration, where the new President swore to preserve, protect, and defend the US.
Joe Biden, calm, gracious & Presidential
With a promise to the American people that he will “always level with you, defend the constitution, defend our democracy and heal the Broken Land”. He asked the American people to put aside their political differences and unite to once again, to become the United States of America.
As one of the world’s leading countries, America must lead the world on environmental, humanitarian and equality issues. More importantly, they demonstrate them in their own country.
You do get the feeling that a new president was a forward step for America, who can now rejoin the world after being internally focused under Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” campaign.
With the challenges facing America with COVID-19, racism and divisiveness among its people, The President and his administration will have to act quickly and take immediate action – especially in their first 100 days.
We truly hope that Joe Biden can actually deliver what he is promising because it will be “Great” for America if he does.
