President Trump's First Day

The first day of Donald Trump's term as the 45th president of the United States began with thousands of jubilant supporters gathering to witness his swearing in. With temperatures in the upper 40s and overcast skies, the crowd was smaller than some previous inaugurations. But the ceremony, from the Trumps arrival at the White House to be greeted by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama to the post-inaugural lunch and the inaugural parade followed tradition. Not far away, protesters clashed with police, who fired tear gas in an effort to disperse the crowds.
