Joseph R Biden or popularly called Joe Biden, the 46th President in the United States of America, was sworn in a very modest inauguration event within the 20th of January 2021 located in the premises of Capitol Hill which has been invaded by Trump supporters a fortnight back. At 78, they are the oldest ever President of the nation to be sworn in: however, his arrival when it reaches this juncture is noted by many as momentous and much-needed because of the aftermath of Trumpism.
Not surprisingly, for the bitterly divided American society, President Biden pleaded for national unity plus the end in the uncivil war together with the slogan ‘shun division, embrace unity’. He explained that ‘unity’ is required because of the paramount need, that he termed as ‘a desperate involve survival coming from the earth itself’, of countering areas of rising political extremism, white supremacy racism, domestic terrorism and also the pandemic that caused more damage in a single year compared to the whole with the World War-2 did to America. He stated that he was the President for those Americans including individuals who did not or still don’t support him. The President said, ‘democracy counts, democracy is fragile’, but continued optimistically by proclaiming that ‘today is democracy’s day’ which ‘democracy has prevailed’. There was much to heal plus more to build, he pleaded.
The event had not been attended with the outgoing President Donald Trump as announced by him 2 or 3 days back, he became exactly the fourth President to take action in USA’s presidential history, as well as the first to do this in last many hundred and half a century. However, Trump’s Vice President Mike Pence attended the ceremony, and significantly has not been around when Trump delivered his farewell speech with an airbase before Airforce-1- to fly where you can Florida. Trump has additionally earned the initial distinction of becoming the 1st ever US President to have impeached twice from the US House. With the Democrats establishing their presence from the Senate their next moves in permanently depriving Trump of post-presidential privileges could be keenly observed.
Earlier, Kamala Harris was sworn in because the Vice President of USA, becoming the 1st ever woman VP, the very first ever black person to elevate to this post plus the first ever person of Asiatic (Indian) origins to imagine this privileged office of the us. People of her original village in Tamil Nadu, India celebrated this huge occasion by prayers inside temples and distributing sweets in large gatherings. However, Kamala Harris like a liberal democrat most likely to take her India-origins seriously and mix with all the people along with with some with the most aggressively Hindu nationalist governments of the united states. More best part about it comes within the wake of Kamala Harris’s rise, with regard to appointing greater than 20 Indian-Americans in Biden Administration of that 17 come in key positions. In fact, Biden had already strengthened his COVID-19 team with a number of Indian-Americans who had the expertise, and the call of ‘set aside politics, fight the pandemic’ augurs well for way ahead for a country where around 600 thousand folks have lost their lives up to now due to the Coronavirus infections.
President Joe Biden’s mission presently is clearly to absolve the legacy of Trump at the earliest opportunity, so that as he said in the speech, to get started on engaging together with the world for peace and democracy. To lead by examples the President experienced action about the very first day of his office. He signed around 15 executive orders reversing some from the crucial foreign policies and national security decisions taken by his predecessor Trump. These orders include, significantly, America rejoining the Paris Agreement on climatic change, revoking the country’s withdrawal in the World Health Organization, making wearing of masks mandatory and rescinding a travel ban imposed on visitors from the 3 major Muslim-majority countries.
The President from the Democrats, fundamentally the cynosure of democracy-spirited people with the globe, had said within his inauguration speech, ‘Together we shall write an American story of hope, not fear, of unity, not division, of light, not darkness. A story of decency and dignity, love and healing and goodness’. We hope Joe Biden succeeds as part of his mission of developing democracy secure and permanent within his country together with on the world. We also hope that American story would inspire many in numerous major countries in the globe where democracy may be coming under serious and ever-increasing threat.
