Just ahead of his swearing in, Biden had tweeted that it is a new day in America. To this, Twitter user from India, Prayag Tiwari, replied that Biden is not his president. Many in the comments thought he was a Trump supporter, but Tiwari cracked up everyone when he said that Biden is not his president because he is from India.

The thread has been expanding constantly, with many users posting funny quips under the hashtag. While some tried to politicise the trend, it's clear that most on social media were enjoying the humour of the situation.

On January 20, Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States and Kamala Harris took oath as first woman, Indian-American and African-American US Vice President.
