Biden calls for end to ‘uncivil war’ in inaugural speech
Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States on Wednesday.
Standing on the steps of the U.S. Capitol two weeks after a mob of then-President Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the building, Biden called for a return to civic decency in an inaugural address marking the end of Trump’s tempestuous four-year term.
“We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this – if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts,” Biden, a Democrat, said after taking the oath of office.
