Joe Biden sworn-in as 46th US President


Washington,  (UNI) Democrat Joe Biden was sworn-in by US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts as the 46th president of the United States on Wednesday.

Outgoing US President Donald Trump did not attend the swearing-in ceremony, as he left for his Mar-a-Lago Golf Club in Palm Beach on Wednesday morning.

Trump became the first President to have skipped the swearing-in ceremony of his successor since 1879, when Andrew Johnson skipped the swearing-in ceremony for Ulysses S Grant.
