Democrat Joe Biden has been sworn-in on Wednesday, 20th January as the 46th President of the United States of America.

Biden was sworn-in by the Chief Justice.

Earlier, Kamara Harris had also been sworn in on the same day as the Vice President, becoming the first African-American woman to occupy the position.

Speaking after the swearing-in, President Biden said: “My whole soul is in this: bringing America together…and I ask every American to join me in this cause.”

Biden defeated Donald Trump in the 2020 American presidential election to emerge the new president of the United States.

Trump who refused to attend the inauguration of his successor had earlier left the white house.

The Presidential Marine One helicopter carrying Donald and Melania Trump took off shortly after 2:15 p.m. from the gardens of the White House.

Speaking just a few words, the outgone president referred to a “fantastic four-year” term, “It’s been a great honour, the honour of a lifetime,” Mr Trump said.

“This has been an incredible four years, We’ve accomplished so much together.” the president said when he arrived at Air Andrews base, about fifteen kilometres from Washington, where the presidential plane Air Force One is housed, before thanking his family.
