Joe Biden sworn in as 46th US President after ‘damaging Trump years’, says former Defence Secretary

Joe Biden has been sworn in today as the 46th President of the United States, as has Kamala Harris become Vice-President, taking the reins of a country divided after four years of Donald Trump. Biden is expected to take a different approach to Donald Trump from day 1, after a scaled-down inauguration ceremony. “Joe Biden is the right person and do not overreact”, says Chuck Hagel, former US Secretary of Defence, who worked closely with Joe Biden although being Republican.
