Trump takes oath of office becoming 45th US President
Trump placed his hand on his family bible and the bible used by both Presidents Abraham Lincoln and Barack Obama at their inaugurations, as US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts administered the Presidential oath of office, APA reports quoting Sputniknews.
Trump is prepared to deliver his inaugural address. A celebratory luncheon will be held at the White House and then Trump will review the inaugural parade scheduled to start at 3:00p.m. (8:00 p.m. GMT).
US security officials said they are taking the threat of violent protests or attempts to disrupt the inauguration proceedings seriously.
