Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th President of the United States of America.
His running mate in the US presidential election of November 3, 2020, Kamala Harris, was also sworn-in as Vice President.
Biden and Harris had arrived at the US Capitol on Wednesday for their official inauguration ceremony.
Biden, 78, was sworn in by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts as the 46th president of the United States, while Kamala Harris, 56, is the first woman to become vice president.
Donald Trump left Washington three hours before Biden’s swearing-in, the first American president to skip the inauguration of his successor in more than 150 years.
