The America president, Joe Biden has signed an Executive Order reversing policies initiated by the former president Donald Trump, after he was sworn in as the 46th and oldest America president on Wednesday.

In the inaugural ceremony that was overseen by over 20,000 National Guards in Washington DC, Biden was administered the oath of office by the US Chief Justice, John Roberts.

Biden in his inaugural speech pledged to unite America as the country swims in divide stemming from a staggering economy and battle with corona virus pandemic which has claimed the lives of about 400,000 of Americans.

Biden said, “To overcome these challenges to restore the soul and secure the future of America requires so much more than words. It requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy: Unity.

“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.”

Commenting on the attack of Trump supporters on Capitol on the 6th of January that left 5 persons dead, Biden said, “Here we stand, just days after a riotous mob thought they could use violence to silence the will of the people, to stop the work on our democracy, to drive us from this sacred ground. It did not happen; it will never happen. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever.”

Trump who never accepted his defeat boycotted the inaugural ceremony of his successor which is by norm an affirmation of peaceful transfer of power. This is happening as first of its kind in the history of America.
