Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the US on January 20 (US time), offering a message of unity and restoration to a deeply divided country reeling from a battered economy and a raging coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans.

Standing on the steps of the US Capitol, Biden called for a return to civic decency in an inaugural address.

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,” Biden was quoted by Reuters as saying.

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.”

Saying there was “no time to waste,” Biden signed 15 executive actions shortly after entering the White House to set a new course and overturn some of then-President Donald Trump’s most controversial policies.

The orders included mandating masks on federal property, halting the withdrawal from the World Health Organization, rejoining the Paris climate accord and ending a travel ban on some Muslim-majority countries./.
