The 44th President of the United States has taken his oath earlier today.

Barack Obama fulfills his dream and makes history as the first biracial President of the United States.

To witness the historical moment, millions have gathered in Washington DC. Crowds are seen in Pennsylvania Avenue near the White House and along the National Mall in front of the Capitol Hill where Obama was sworn in.

Obama is taking charge whilst America is in a huge economic crisis. His key adviser says addressing this financial crisis will be his top priority.

You can watch him being sworn in, as well as his beautiful, eloquent speech above, which speaks on using  new technology to spearhead our country into energy independence, as well as responsibility and looking towards the future.

You can also read a transcript of the speech here.
