Joe Biden has started his job as President of the United States. He was inaugurated at a grand ceremony in the capital Washington.
In a solemn ceremony Biden promised to do his utmost as president. His vice president Kamala Harris did the same thing.
Corona‘s presidential party was a lot smaller than usual. Nevertheless, an attempt has been made to make the ceremony as festive as possible.
That’s how Lady Gaga sang the national anthem during the ceremony. Singer Jennifer Lopez also performed.
Because of corona, there were no spectators, so the place was decorated with thousands of flags.
Many Dutch children who live in America also watched the ceremony. In the video below you can see what they think of their new president.
