    SACRAMENTO —  Forty years ago, I watched awestruck as Ronald Reagan moved into the White House amid pageantry that was 180 degrees different from Joe Biden’s subdued arrival. California’s former governor, an upbeat dreamer, always envisioned America as a “shining city on a hill.” Biden was inaugurated in a city that depressingly resembled an armed camp — as did California’s state Capitol and statehouses around the country on Wednesday. That’s because the departing president had recklessly whipped up supporters into a deadly mob that stormed and ransacked the U.S. Capitol, leaving the nation shaken. Jimmy Carter, the president whom Reagan defeated, had always promised Americans, “I will never lie to you.” Donald Trump, ousted by Biden, was a serial liar. First, he lied that “illegal” voting cost him a popular-vote victory in 2016. Finally, he lied about “fraudulent” state elections “stealing” the presidency from him in 2020. It probably was...
    Donald Trump has left the White House early this morning. At a military base near Washington, he has attended a military tribute wrapped only by his family and the few members of his cabinet who are still on his side. There he has said that he will return in some way, something that will be seen as time passes. What has already been seen is that his four years at the helm of the White House have not served him well to get reelection. And his legacy bears the mark of the assault on the Capitol by his most extreme supporters. Abandoned by his most faithful political circle, with a blank agenda and without the social media speaker, Trump has squeezed the last hours as president to grant pardons. 143 in total, including that of his former collaborator Steve Bannon, accused of fraud and money laundering.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th president of the United States, declaring that “democracy has prevailed” and summoning American resilience and unity to confront the deeply divided nation’s historic confluence of crises. Denouncing a national “uncivil war,” Biden took the oath Wednesday at a U.S. Capitol that had been battered by an insurrectionist siege just two weeks earlier. Then, taking his place in the White House Oval Office, he plunged into a stack of executive actions that began to undo the heart of his polarizing predecessor ‘s agenda on matters from the deadly pandemic to climate change.

Instead, Biden gazed out on a cold Washington morning dotted...

    US President Joe Biden said Wednesday that his predecessor Donald Trump left him a “very generous” letter in the Oval Office, in keeping with a tradition of the change of command, despite the fact that he did not attend the ceremony. Miamimundo / Efe “The president left me a very generous letter,” Biden told reporters at the White House. Because Trump announced that he would not attend the handover ceremony and never congratulated his rival in the presidential election, much expectation was raised about whether he would comply with the rite of leaving a message for his successor. However, Biden’s announcement did not reveal the content of the message, as the president indicated that the letter is private. “Because it is private, I will not talk about it until I talk to him,” he told correspondents.

    CNN’s Van Jones celebrated the new tenor of the Biden administration’s relationship with the White House press corps, by fawning over the basic back-and-forth between the two. On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki held the Biden administration’s inaugural briefing and discussed a number of topics, including the “potentially divisive” impeachment trial of the 45th president. Anchor Anderson Cooper asked for Jones to reflect on what he’d seen in the first hours of the Biden White House — and Jones didn’t hold back in praising the very ordinariness of it all. “It’s just mesmerizing to watch a functional government doing functional government type things,” Jones said, before lapsing into a literal description of a normal press briefing. “I mean, just a press conference and a human and the person said words and the words made sense and then somebody asked a question and then the person answered the question and you’re just crying, just...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on Joe Biden’s presidential inauguration (all times local): 8:40 p.m. Kamala Harris might be vice president, but she doesn’t get to enjoy all of the vice presidential perks just yet. Harris won’t immediately move into the vice president’s residence at the Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C. A Harris aide says the delay will allow time for repairs to the home. The house needs its chimney liners replaced, among other fixes, and it’s easier to finish the work with the home unoccupied.

    Donald Trump has just left the White House for the last time as president, ending the most chaotic and divisive presidency in American history. The one-term president will now leave Washington, D.C., having petulantly refused to attend the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden. Earlier Wednesday morning, Biden announced a list of 17 executive actions he will enforce within hours of taking office as he gets down to the work of reversing some of the damage done by the departing president. Trump left the White House having been impeached twice—an unprecedented disgrace for a U.S. president. He also oversaw the response to a pandemic that has left over 400,000 Americans dead, and his time in office climaxed in the incitement of a deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol. In the dying hours of his presidency, he went on a last-gasp clemency spree and pardoned a list of cronies who made his...
    New York : Trump’s last dawn in the White House Photo: / EPA / GAMAL DIAB / EFE Donald Trump leaves the White House this morning, ending four years of his controversial presidency, and without waiting to complete the protocol for handing over command to his successor, Joe Biden. Thus a government marked by the power conflicts and racial and verbal tensions that evolved into deadly violence when his followers took to the Capitol on January 6, in an attempt to stop Biden’s electoral confirmation, leaving five people dead. The coronavirus pandemic, which yesterday totaled more than 400,000 deaths in the US, marked Trump’s last year in power and the election campaign, leading him to question the legitimacy of the results due to the massive early vote for avoid contagions. At 74, Trump will not return to New York, your home state and habitual residence....

    New York (CNN Business)At the moment Joe Biden is sworn in as the next president of the United States, another transition of power will take place on social media. On Wednesday, Biden and his team will gain access to a long list of official government accounts across the major social media platforms, including the @POTUS account on Twitter. With the tap of a button, the Biden administration will inherit a digital megaphone with the potential to make news and shape the public image of the US government.The transfer of these official accounts, which include not just those representing Biden and the White House but nearly every arm of government, has emerged as an important aspect of the broader transition of power, especially after Twitter became the favored online platform of President Donald Trump."It certainly has a big symbolic value," said David Lazer, a political science and computer sciences professor at...
    (CNN)First lady Melania Trump did not write her own "thank you" notes to the White House residence staff who have cared for her and her family for the last four years, according to two sources with knowledge of the notes and Trump's handling of them. The 80 or so staff who received the type written notes were under the assumption the first lady had written them herself. Instead, Trump tasked a lower-level East Wing staffer with writing them "in her voice," and she signed her name. Several sources familiar with Trump's activities, or lack thereof in recent weeks, have described the first lady as being "checked out," that she "just wants to go home," and is "not sad to be leaving" Washington and the White House.One of the sources discussing the "thank you" notes with CNN said it is customary for first ladies -- and occasionally presidents as well --...
    Donald Trump has revoked his own executive order to limit federal administration employees from lobbying or working for foreign countries in one of his final acts as president.  Early on Wednesday morning, Trump rescinded the order, one of the few steps he has taken towards fulfilling his campaign promise to 'drain the swamp' by putting an end to the practice of individuals landing lucrative private sector jobs off the back of their government posts. The original order required staff to sign a pledge that they would never become registered foreign lobbyists and prevented them from lobbying the federal agencies where they worked for five years after leaving their government post.  It was signed during a highly-publicised Oval Office ceremony in January 2017. In contrast, there was little fanfare when the White House released the directive rescinding the order at 1:08am on Wednesday.  No explanation was given for why Trump chose to...
