Joe Biden has been sworn in as America’s 46th President on the steps of the U.S. Capitol under extraordinary circumstances. The inauguration, which was already scaled back due to the coronavirus pandemic, took place under heavy security exactly two weeks after pro-Trump supporters stormed the Capitol building.
Many here in the US are wondering whether President Biden will be able to unify all Americans, not just the 81 million Americans who voted for him but the 74 million who voted for Trump, as he tries to restore trust in the country’s democratic institutions.
So will Biden be able to bring Americans together behind his presidency, in a climate of growing distrust and conspiracy theories? And how will Biden address some of the other challenges facing the US domestically and abroad? Guests: Luis Gutierrez
