TEXAS: At an inauguration ceremony in Washington, Joe Biden said it was “a new day in America” as he arranged to become the 46th president of the United States.
US President Donald Trump left the White House for the last time, flying to Florida, avoiding the inauguration of successor Joe Biden in an extraordinary break with convention. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump strolled a short red carpet and boarded Marine One on the White House lawn for the short flight to Joint Base Andrews where he will board Air Force One.
Trump said in a brief that it had been an “amazing four years” and the “honor of a lifetime.” He said: “I just want to say goodbye.”
US President-elect Joe Biden will be confirmed in as the 46th President and and his deputy Kamala Harris will be the 49th Vice-President of the United States tonight. Ms Harris will leave a mark as America’s first woman, first Black and first person with south Asian roots to take the position of the Vice President in the US.
Mr. Biden plans to commence his new administration Wednesday with orders to reestablish the United States to the Paris climate accord and the World Health Organization. He will sign 17 orders and actions hours after being confirmed in as US leader. This is to break from policies of departing President Donald Trump and set new ways on immigration, the environment, fighting Covid-19 and the economy.
