More recently, despite pro-Trump protesters attempting to halt the democratic process of transferring power through the Capitol attack, Joe Biden became the 46th President of the United States. Even upon the inauguration of Joe Biden, Trump managed to set a new “record” for his administration. Having been the first president to be indicted twice, Trump also became the first president not to participate in the inauguration of the new administration. In the American tradition, when power is transferred, the newly elected president delivers a speech setting out the tone and priorities of his mandate. Like the last Democratic President, Barack Obama, who took power during an economic crisis, Joe Biden is in power amid a pandemic that has weakened the US economy, leaving millions out of work and killing more than 400,000. In his first speech as President of the United States, Biden put national unity and the need for social dialogue first.
I have made the most important signals mentioned by Biden, as well as his predecessors: Donald Trump, Barack Obama, George Bush and Bill Clinton, to see how the tone and priorities of US presidents have changed.
