Biden calls for unity, promises better days ahead in inaugural speech

For the new president, after the pomp and ceremony, it was time to get to work

Under blue skies and a near-empty National Mall, Joe Biden was sworn in Wednesday as the nation’s 46th president. He takes the reins of power during a historic moment of crisis and challenge.

During his first speech in office, Biden vowed to be a president for all Americans and called on the nation to end its “uncivil war,” declaring democracy has prevailed while urging a deeply divided country to unite around beating the COVID-19 pandemic. Senior Correspondent David Cruz reports.
