“End white supremacy”: Biden delivers first speech as president

New US President Joe Biden delivered a speech at the inauguration ceremony.

As reported The Guardian, he said that today is “the day of America and the triumph of democracy.”

Biden recalled the storming of the Capitol on January 6 and noted that these events demonstrated the value of American democracy. According to him, a split has occurred in the country, and now it is time to start uniting it.

He pledged to “be the president of all Americans” and always defend the country, the Constitution, and every one of his fellow citizens, even those who do not support him.

The head of state called on Americans to be tolerant, respect each other and “oppose the superiority of the white population.”

Separately, he emphasized that Kamala Harris became the first woman to serve as US Vice President.

Biden also announced a minute of silence in memory of the victims of the coronavirus.
