February 1, 2021 - At noon on January 20, 2021, Joe Biden took his Oath of Office before Chief Justice John Roberts of the U.S. Supreme Court and became the 46th President of America, ushering the dawn of a new era committed to advance humanity and justice, inclusiveness in leadership, democratic tenets, and the rule of law and elevate public trustworthiness and empathy.
Vice-President Kamala Harris, the first woman and the first Asian American (of South Asian-Jamaican parentage) to be elected to the post, took her Oath before Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump ended his incumbency in disgrace: the only American President impeached twice by the U.S. House of Representatives and awaiting trial in the U.S. Senate for provoking seditious acts or “inciting of insurrection” (the sole article of impeachment resolution from the House) against the citadel of democracy, against his own country. Outgoing Vice-President Mike Pence skipped the send-off ceremonies for the Ex-President and attended Biden’s inauguration before heading home to Indiana to join his family after the Inauguration
