The 45th president

Donald Trump’s inauguration

Donald Trump was inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States on Jan. 20, 2017.

As he was sworn into the nation’s highest office, the Republican billionaire businessman completed a journey that began in Trump Tower in June 2015, and ushered in a new era in American politics.

Confrontational and provocative, Trump triumphed in the most contentious presidential campaign in recent memory. He took the same approach during the transition period, while promising great change for the country.
