Donald J. Trump Has Now Been Sworn In As The 45th President Of The United States Of America

DONALD-TRUMP-800x532Like it or not, Donald Trump is now the 45th president of the United States of America.

The real estate tycoon and former reality show star is now commander in chief and the top executive of the government, shouldering the burden of keeping Americans safe at home and protecting the country’s global power.

The inauguration of the controversial real estate mogul followed tradition, but with several unique changes. Trump chose two Bibles for his swearing-in ceremony: his childhood Bible which his mother gave him at the age of nine after he completed Sunday School; and President Abraham Lincoln’s Bible.

The only other president to use Lincoln’s Bible was Barack Obama in 2009 and 2013.

The traditions of the day began unfolding Friday morning. Trump and his family attended a private worship service at St. John’s Church, known as the church of presidents. President Barack Obama wrote a letter to Trump and left it on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, as outgoing presidents typically do for their successors.

Obama left the Oval Office for the final time before welcoming the Trumps to the White House. Asked if he had any words for the American people, Obama said, “thank you.”

The customs and symbolism that will play out over the course of the day — from the President-elect’s ride to the Capitol with Obama to the First Couple’s dance at an inaugural ball — will be familiar. But the circumstances of this inauguration — the 58th in the nation’s history — could hardly be more unconventional.
