Joe Biden has been sworn in as the 46th US president, ending one of the most dramatic political transitions in American history. Please subscribe HERE http://bit.ly/1rbfUog

“Democracy has prevailed,” he said after taking the oath of office from Chief Justice John Roberts.

Donald Trump – who has not formally conceded the presidency to Mr Biden – snubbed the inauguration ceremony, in a departure from longstanding precedent.

The new president has announced a raft of measures reversing Trump policies.

Kamala Harris was sworn in as vice-president ahead of Mr Biden. She is the first woman – and the first black and Asian-American person – to serve in the role, a heartbeat from the presidency.

Newsnight’s US Correspondent David Grossman reports.

  5. Lets see where Marjorie Taylor Greene's articles of Impeachment that she lodged against Biden in connection with his dodgy dealings in Ukraine etc goes, other than getting buried by the DC swamp. I wonder if the BBC will report that fact……I doubt it, it doesn't fit with the narrative does it!
