WASHINGTON (SBG) — Former President Barack Obama tweeted congratulations to Joe Biden, his former vice president, on Wednesday, just hours before the inauguration.

"Congratulations to my friend, President @JoeBiden! This is your time," Obama tweeted.

Along with the congratulations, Obama tweeted a photo of himself with Biden in the White House with their backs to the camera as they walked through a doorway in unity.

Biden was sworn in as the 46th U.S. president at noon on Wednesday outside the U.S. Capitol surrounded by increased security following the deadly Capitol insurrection on Jan. 6.
