Am emotional Lady Gaga performed a dramatic version of the U.S. national anthem, Garth Brooks sang a cappella, and Jennifer Lopez gave a shoutout in Spanish at the inauguration of President Joe Biden on Wednesday, a ceremony that was marked by diversity and appeals for unity. Gaga, known for her flamboyant outfits, wowed in a huge fuchsia Schiaparelli couture silk skirt and black top adorned by a large gold brooch of a dove carrying an olive branch as she stepped up to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner." Gaga turned at one point to gesture to the U.S. flag flying high over the Capitol, the seat of Congress that just two weeks ago was the scene of an attack by supporters of outgoing President Donald Trump seeking to overturn Biden's election.

Joe Biden on Wednesday night risked a transatlantic spat with Britain after it appeared he had decided not to display a bust of Sir Winston Churchill in the Oval Office. Donald Trump had given a prominent spot to a Jacob Epstein bust of the British war leader. But as Mr Biden entered the Oval Office for the first time in his presidency the bust did not appear to be there. The Washington Post, which was given an advance tour of Mr Biden's office, reported that "Biden does not have the [Churchill] bust on display". New presidents have their choice of how to decorate the Oval Office, including busts, paintings and some furniture. The Epstein sculpture of Churchill was given to President George W Bush by Tony Blair and displayed in the Oval Office. Barack Obama had it replaced with a bust of Martin Luther King Jr in 2009. At the time Mr Obama said he had a second bust of Churchill in his private quarters. Boris Johnson, who was mayor of London at the time, said it was a "snub to Britain". Mr Trump pledged before his election to restore the original bust in the Oval Office and quickly did so on his arrival at the White House. The White House did not immediately comment on the whereabouts of the Churchill bust now that Mr Biden is president. Mr Biden chose to decorate his office with a large portrait of Franklin D Roosevelt, along with paintings of Thomas Jefferson, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin and George Washington. He chose busts of figures including Martin Luther King Jr, Robert Kennedy, Rosa Parks, Eleanor Roosevelt and Cesar Chavez. Mr Biden also changed the drapes and rug, and has a moon rock on a shelf.

That had made Trump a popular figure in democratic Taiwan, which China views as its own territory, to be taken by force if needed, and unnerved the government that Biden may not be as helpful. Emily Horne, spokeswoman for the White House National Security Council, said the U.S. commitment to Taiwan was "rock-solid", after the island's de facto ambassador in Washington, Hsiao Bi-khim, attended Biden's swearing in.
