Donald J Trump sworn in as President of America, says “America First”
Washington, Jan 21 (Only Kashmir): Donald J Trump has been sworn in as the 45th President of America and vowed to rebuild the country using “American hands.” During his inauguration speech he said “from this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.”
“American carnage stops right here and right now,” he said on the steps of the Capitol after taking the Oath of Office.
“From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land. From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first. Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.”
He said he would strip power away from Washington and give it “back to the people”.
“We must think big and dream even bigger,” he said. “America will start winning again, winning like never before.
“We will bring back our jobs, we will bring back our borders, we will bring back our wealth and we will bring back our dreams.
“We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation.”
Barack Obama, the former president and his wife Michelle, the former first lady, watched on as they handed power to the Trumps.
During Mr Trump’s speech, the rain started falling in Washington.
He and wife Melania had earlier had tea at the White House with the Obamas.
Hillary and Bill Clinton were also there along with other former presidents, George W Bush and Jimmy Carter, and their first ladies. George H W Bush and his wife Barbara remain in hospital in Houston.
It was the first time Mrs Clinton had come face-to-face with Mr Trump since her bruising election defeat to the Republican in November.
