Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States of America today. In his speech he said; «Today, we celebrate the triumph not of a candidate, but of a cause, the cause of democracy. The will of the people has been heard and the will of the people has been heeded.
We have learned again that democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile. And at this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed.» (big applause)
Democracy is a form of government in which the people have the authority to choose their governing legislator. Joe Biden was the most popular candidate in the US and won the election in 2020. It is the people`s will. The people decided.
The most popular president in US history was inaugurated today. He got more votes than Obama and Clinton. Biden won despite the fact that Trump got 10 million more votes in 2020 than he did in 2016.
The streets in Washington during the inauguration ceremony were empty. Instead of thousands of Americans cheering, we saw thousands of flags on the streets. Instead of happy American people on the streets in Washington we saw 30,000 armed soldiers behind a massive 12-foot electric wall.
The love for Joe Biden was huge in the Hate Trump Media today. «The reason Biden has to do this is that he`s just so incredibly popular,» Don Lemon said on CNN. «The lights from Lincoln Memorial were like Joe Biden`s arms stretching out to all American,» CNN said.
The incredibly popular president is considered to construct economic policy around issues like race, gender, equality, and climate change, rather than around traditional indicators like GDP or deficit ratios.
According to Axios, Biden is charting an economic policy that`s visible to the left of Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama. Biden proposed a $1,9 trillion economic stimulus plan and a $15 minimum wage. Employers, employees, and economists warned it will kill millions of jobs.
Joe Biden signals a shift away from fossil fuels and rejoins WHO and Paris climate agreement. Trump walked away from Paris agreement because he said it was too expensive for American workers. He wanted people to keep their jobs.
It will be difficult for Biden to balance the need to address the climate crisis without worsening the jobs crisis facing the United States. But his plan calls for pouring trillions of dollars into clean energy, creating millions of union jobs while slashing carbon emissions.
European commission president Ursula Von Der Leyen tweeted this; «The United States is back. And Europe stands ready. To reconnect with an old and trusted partner, to breathe new life into our cherished alliance. I look forward to working together with @JoeBiden.
President Joe Biden calls for unity. Good luck!
