On Wednesday, January 20, Joe Biden will be sworn in as the 46th president of the United States. Kamala Harris will also make history at the inauguration as she becomes the first woman vice president and the first Black and South Asian vice president.

"I am humbled by the trust and confidence you have placed in me," Biden said in his November acceptance speech. "I pledge to be a president who seeks not to divide, but to unify. Who doesn’t see red and blue states, but a United States. And who will work with all my heart to win the confidence of the whole people. For that is what America is about: the people."
