We are now into the third week of the US presidency of Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. but it seems like it was only yesterday that he was sworn into what remains to be the most powerful office on earth.
Right after Joe Biden took his oath of office, Indonesian President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo went on Twitter and Instagram to congratulate him and Vice President Kamala Harris, first woman, first person of color and of Asian bloodline to occupy the position. Felicitations poured in from other world leaders, notably Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, President Emmanuel Macron of France, PM Yushihide Suga of Japan, PM Lee Hsien Loong of Singapore, PM Boris Johnson of UK, PM Justin Trudeau of Canada and a host of others.
