After taking the oath of office, Joe Biden delivers his first remarks as US president.

“This is America’s day. This is democracy’s day,” he says. “The people, the will of the people have been heard.”

“At this hour my friends, democracy has prevailed,” Biden continues, noting the storming of the US Capitol by Trump supporters on January 6.
