WASHINGTON D.C. (EETV) - Donald Trump is officially the 45th President of the United States, following the inauguration ceremony on Friday, January 21.
Former Presidents Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton all attended the ceremony. Hillary Clinton was also in attendance to view the peaceful transition of power.
Following a divisive campaign, President Trump made no reconciliations toward Clinton or her supporters in his inaugural speech. He promised, “From this moment on, it’s going to be America First,” and that power would be shifted from Washington, D.C. back to the American People.
Later in the day, Trump signed his first executive orders, one to “minimize the economic burden” of the Affordable Care Act and another to reverse planned cuts to insurance premiums on Federal Housing Authority mortgages.
The Trump family also attended the parade and several inaugural balls held in Washington before spending their first night in the White House.
The Obamas left shortly after the ceremony en route to Palm Springs, California, where they are expected to vacation for the next several days before returning to Washington for their youngest daughter, Sasha, to finish high school.
