After four years of the Trump administration’s US First policy, President Joe Biden sent a clear message to other nations in his inauguration speech.
“The world is watching us, watching us today. So here is my message to those beyond our borders: America has been tested and we have come out stronger for it. We will repair our alliances and commit ourselves to the world once again. Not to meet the challenges of yesterday, but the challenges of today and tomorrow, ”said Biden.
“And we will lead, not just by the example of our power, but by the power of our example. We will be a strong and reliable partner for peace, progress and security. ”
Some Latin American leaders reacted after Biden was sworn in:

The commitment to democracy, freedom and human rights does not recognize borders. I wish President Biden the best. »
