Donald J. Trump was inaugurated into the position of President and Commander-in-Chief of the United States recently. Many have been wondering if he is the right man for the job .
Trump’s inauguration was “low-key” but ironically was be the most expensive one ever. Future candidate for The 2020 US Elections, Kanye West was rejected to perform as he wasn’t “American” enough.
If you’re wondering what an inauguration is: it is a ceremony where someone is official placed in office. In the USA, it is a tradition dating back to George Washington (the first president of the USA). Traditionally, the inauguration of a President in the US takes place on the 20th January. However, if 20th January falls on a Sunday, a private inauguration takes place with the Chief Justice and on the Monday afterwards a public one is held. One example is Barack Obama’s inauguration for his second term as President which took place on January 21st 2013.
Trump is the 45th President of the United States and the fourth to hold the title in the 21st century (the others being Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The inauguration began at 14:30 GMT with musical performances to open until 16:30 GMT when Mike Pence (Trump’s vice-president) was sworn in to office until finally at 17:00 GMT Trump was sworn in.
To end the Obamas’ time as the First Family, they met with the Trumps at the White House for a morning tea.
