Even more significant changes have taken place been made. The portrait of President Andrew Jackson (1829-1837), a supporter of slavery, installed by Donald Trump, has been replaced by that of Benjamin Franklin, one of America's founding fathers and staunch defender of the abolition of the slavery, reports the Belgian daily Le Soir.

Another symbol dethroned: a bust of Winston Churchill, replaced by the civil rights figure Rosa Parks (who had refused to give way to a white passenger on a bus when segregation was raging in the United States in 1955, in Montgomery now a symbol of the civil rights movement) and by the Latin trade unionist Cesar Chavez (figure of the peasant struggles of the years 1960-1970).

A bust of President Abraham Lincoln, who abolished slavery in 1865, has also been installed in the Oval Office.

A change of style that embodies the values ​​and hope that Joe Biden carries across his country.
