January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States during the inauguration ceremony, a day some people have been fearing but others have been anticipating. Trump and his vice-president, Mike Pence, took oath outside of the U.S. Capitol Friday morning with U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts presiding. During the ceremony, protesters lined the streets of D.C. 

After being sworn in, Trump’s first speech promised to keep America his number one priority in every decision with his “America first” policy. He declared that his victory was a victory for the working class. Trump continued to say in his inauguration speech: “Today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another, but are transferring power from Washington D.C. and giving it back to you, the people.”

He continued his speech saying, “Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.” He concluded his address stating “that all changes are starting right here and right now” and graciously showed his gratitude to former President Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama with their help in the transition in to office. “And yes,” he said, “Together, we will make America great again.”

The ceremony was later followed by a luncheon, parade, and three inaugural balls that evening to conclude the inauguration ceremony.
