New US President Joe Biden predicted America's most difficult and deadly period in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic. The politician shared such a gloomy forecast during his inaugural speech, which was broadcast by the NBC channel.
вЂњWe will need all our strength to survive this dark winter. We are on the cusp of what could be the most difficult and deadly period of the pandemic, вЂќ Biden said. He urged to forget about political differences and fight COVID-19 as one nation. The politician also announced a minute of silence in memory of the victims of the coronavirus.
The ceremony is attended by the country's outgoing vice president Mike Pence. Donald Trump refused to attend the ceremony, breaking a 150-year-old tradition, and left Washington just hours before the celebrations. From the capital, he went to his Mar-a-Lago residence in Florida. Before that, he said goodbye to his supporters and promised to return вЂњin one form or another.вЂќ
It is expected that on the very first day of his presidency, he will overturn a number of decisions of his predecessor, Donald Trump. In particular, we are talking about the abolition of restrictions on the entry into the United States of citizens of a number of Muslim countries. In addition, Biden intends to return to the Paris climate agreement, from which Washington withdrew under Trump, as well as oblige citizens of the country to observe the mask regime when moving from one state to another.
