Taking Helm of Divided Nation, President Biden Calls for End to 'Uncivil War'
He was sworn in as president of the United States on Wednesday
Democrat Joe Biden was sworn in as president of the United States on Wednesday, vowing to end the "uncivil war" in a deeply divided country reeling from a battered economy and a raging coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans.
With the U.S. Capitol encircled by thousands of armed troops two weeks after a mob laid siege to it, Biden took the oath of office administered by U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts and became the oldest U.S. president in history at age 78.
"To overcome these challenges to restore the soul and secure the future of America requires so much more than words," Biden said. "It requires the most elusive of all things in a democracy: unity."
