Biden vows ‘we will defeat’ white supremacy, domestic terror

US President Joe Biden is calling on Americans to overcome their divisions, declaring in his first address in office that “without unity, there is no peace.”

Biden also pledges during his inaugural address that he will be honest with the country as it continues to confront difficulties, saying that leaders have an obligation “to defend the truth and defeat the lies.”

He asks even those who did not vote for him to give him a chance. He says, “Hear me out as we move forward.”

As he did frequently during the campaign, Biden pledges that he will be a “president for all Americans” and will “fight as hard for those who did not support me as for those who did.”

He adds, “We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue.”

Biden also vows to defeat political extremism and domestic terror in his first speech as US president.

The United States faces “a rise of political extremism, white supremacy, domestic terrorism, that we must confront, and we will defeat,” he says.
