A former US ambassador to New Zealand hopes the Biden administration is the end of mis-truths.
Joe Biden has just taken the oath of office on a sunny but chilly morning in Washington DC.
Mark Gilbert, who was ambassador in the final years of Obama's presidency, says people began to believe the Trump administration's rhetoric.
He told Mike Hosking the American people need to hear the truth and see work on issues that affect the country.
"I really believe that Joe Biden is the right person to bring the US back together."
