Joe Biden Becomes 46th President of the United States

President Joseph Biden takes oath of office.

WASHINGTON - Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. became the 46th President of the United States shortly before noon today. Holding up his right hand, with his wife Jill Biden, holding a Bible, he was sworn in by U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts. Biden became the oldest man ever to be inaugurated president at the age of 78.

Biden was sworn-in on the west steps outside of the U.S. Capitol, under sunny skies in 42-degree F temperature, under unprecedented circumstances in modern history. Biden faces a daunting task to help heal a nation that is in the midst of a global pandemic that has claimed the lives of over 400,000 Americans since last March. He inherits a nation with an economy in its worst condition since the Great Depression. The new president inherits a country divided because of racial and partisan polarization.
