Joe Biden and Kamala Harris
They post their first tweets in office
Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been sworn in as President and Vice President of the United States. These are the first two tweets of the two in office.
Today, January 20th, the new Vice President of the United States of America, Kamala Harris, 56, and then the new President, Joe Biden (78, "Promise me"), were sworn in. Within a very short time both published their first tweets in office.
"There is no time to lose when it comes to tackling the crises we are facing", explained Biden. That's why he still goes to the Oval Office today to "get straight to work" and to provide American families with "immediate help". Harris answered meanwhile just with a "ready for service", but also explained on Instagram: "For the people – always."
"Congratulations to my friend, President Joe Biden!"
Previously, the former US President Barack Obama (59) – under whom Biden was Vice President – and Hillary Clinton (73), who ran against Biden's predecessor Donald Trump (74) as a presidential candidate in 2016, had spoken out. "Congratulations to my friend, President Joe Biden! Now is your time," wrote Obama to a common picture. Clinton said she was excited "to be able to call these two wonderful people 'Mr. President' and 'Dr. Biden'". She shared a picture about it with the new president and his wife Jill Biden (69).
