Watch Trump's Inaugural Concert at Lincoln Memorial

Watch Trump's Inaugural Concert at Lincoln Memorial

The country still faces significant domestic struggles, including violence, poverty and education issues, all of which need to be addressed, Trump said.

Trump's oath of office is the only essential on Friday; all the rest is window dressing. At noon, he will become THE PRESIDENT, in the parlance of the White House. As the president-elect left NY behind, the capital braced for an onslaught of inaugural crowds and demonstrators numbering in the hundreds of thousands.

But before all that, Republicans and Trump's still-growing staff are set for a celebration. There's never been a movement like this.

"Fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you", Trump said in his inaugural address.

It will be "a very personal and honest statement about his vision for the country", Trump's spokesman Sean Spicer said. "In fact, we can't wait to get to work for the American people to make it great again". Everybody throughout our country. The boycott grew significantly after the then president-elect tweeted Saturday that John Lewis, Democratic congressman from Georgia and civil rights icon, should "finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities".

"That was some big victory".

"We're going to be backing up law enforcement".

U.S. Rep. Roger Williams, R-Austin, released a statement after Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America on the west front of the U.S. Capitol.

The president-elect participated in a series of pre-inaugural rituals and celebrations, beginning with a reception at the Trump International Hotel he opened in downtown Washington past year.

Veteran Shelly Goode-Burgoyne, who served two tours in Iraq, is concerned that Trump may roll back hard-earned reforms that have ended gender barriers in the military, such as Secretary of Defense Ash Carter's decision in late 2015 to open up all combat roles to women without exception.

"Nazi scum!" a masked man yelled through a police barricade at a woman in a sequined gown as she defiantly waved her ticket for the event.

U.S. sees North Korea activity signaling possible missile test-launch
On September 5, 2016, Pyongyang launched three ballistic missiles in the direction of the Sea of Japan. In 2016 North Korea conducted a test of an ICBM engine made up of a cluster of smaller rockets.

It was unclear how many people were arrested in the most violent of a series of demonstrations held across the nation's capital.

There is no official confirmation of the extent of the protests, although police are directing protestors as they march and chant.

Some protesters could be seen setting small fires in the streets, though it was unclear what was set ablaze.

It has been reported police were forced to use pepper spray on one protester with riot police deployed.

Trump and his wife arrived at the White House about 9:40 a.m. ET where they were greeted by Obama and first lady Michelle Obama.

Members of Bikers for Trump assembled near the start of the route the new president will take to the White House to cheer the parade, shrugging off Trump opponents who briefly engaged them in a shouting match. "He said "God bless America" like five or six times". In light of this, it's my commitment to you, that I intend to truly be, president of ALL the people, whether you voted for me or not.

All around them, Washington is hustling to prepare for Trump's swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol. "The old president was hope and change and got us nothing in eight years".

DC workers are also navigating around the closures of five Metro stops - Mount Vernon Square, Archives, Federal Triangle, Smithsonian and the Pentagon.

According to a National Park Service's list of First Amendment permit applications, organizers expect 200,000 people to attend.

The decision: Long umbrellas still won't be allowed.
