Today, less than 24 hours after Joe Biden has assumed the role of President of the United States of America, newspapers worldwide hailed his inauguration and many of the English newspapers used his words “Democracy has prevailed” in their headlines.

The New York Times also used the same quote and added “Biden vows to mend nation.” The headlines framed a picture of Joe Biden embracing his wife Jill.
Although the Financial Times is known for its conservative headings, it became less staid and used the same quote with a large picture of the President and his wife and an inset of the Vice President.

The front page of the Scotsman also featured a huge picture of Biden with the quote but the paper decided to add more so their caption was: “Democracy is precious. Democracy is fragile. In this hour, my friends, democracy has prevailed.”

Another newspaper stayed with the theme of the day but used another relevant quote. The Washington Post’s front page has a photo of Biden taking the oath of office and the above says “Biden: ‘Unity is the path’”
