The signings, Biden’s first official presidential acts, included the Inauguration Day Proclamation, as well as nominations to Cabinet and sub-Cabinet positions in his administration.
Biden has sworn the oath of office to become the 46th president of the United States, declaring that “democracy has prevailed.”
There were comforting signs of tradition for the hallowed American democratic rite at a U.S. Capitol battered by an insurrectionist siege just two weeks ago. On a chilly Washington day dotted with snow flurries, a bipartisan trio of ex-presidents along with the elite of nation’s government gathered for the ceremony.
