Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States on January 20, 2021 in a dramatically scaled down, socially-distanced inauguration ceremony. Kamala Harris also became the first black American, first woman and first person of Indian descent to reach the office of US vice-president. The event was attended by several former presidents and vice-presidents, but Biden's predecessor Donald Trump and his wife Melania were noticeably absent. Trump chose not to attend the inauguration, after claiming without evidence that the election was stolen. After taking his oath of office, Biden addressed the nation to pledge to heal America's deep political divisions, beat Covid-19, fix the economy and repair the international reputation of the US.
