On Friday, Jan. 20, Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. While standing on the West Front of the Capitol, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. administered the oath of office to Trump, whose wife, Melania, and children stood by his side.

The newly sworn in president then delivered his inaugural address, in which he laid out his hopes for the four years ahead. "We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people. Together, we will determine the course of America, and the world, for many, many years to come," he stated.

President Trump thanked the Obama family for their help throughout the transition. "They have been magnificent," he said of President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle Obama.
