In his maiden speech as President, 78-year-old Biden pledged to repair America’s global alliances, which suffered during his predecessor Donald Trump’s four-year regime.
“This is America’s day. This is democracy’s day. A day in history and hope, of renewal and resolve,” Biden said.
Biden also vowed to end the “uncivil war” in a deeply divided country reeling from a battered economy and a raging coronavirus pandemic that has killed more than 400,000 Americans.
The one word he used most during his speech, without accounting for prepositions, was “America”.
He used it 19 times in his nearly 2,500-word long address.
It was followed by the words nation (13), Americans (11), democracy (10), story (9) and unity/history/world (8).
His speech was also peppered with words like “together”, “war”, “stand” and “fellow”.
