On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States. Since the end of George Washington’s second term as President, the United States has seen a peaceful transfer of power for 220 years. The inauguration of the incoming President has been the mechanism by which that transfer occurs since March 4, 1797 when John Adams was inaugurated as the second President of the United States.
After 8 years of disappointment and a slow economy, America is ready for a new direction. Americans spoke on November 8th, 2016 and now with a House of Representatives, Senate and White House listening to We the People, their voices will finally be heard. The American people are ready to get America back on track and Inauguration Day marks day one of that exciting journey.
The 58th inauguration ceremony will officially begin the Donald J. Trump Administration and will mark the start of a bold new vision for the country. President-elect Trump has a plan to make America great again and is surrounding himself with leaders who will help execute his vision. From the undisputed top military expert on counterinsurgency General James Mattis as his Secretary of Defense, to the extremely successful businessman and negotiator Rex Tillerson as his Secretary of State, Donald Trump has demonstrated extreme prudence in selecting the right people for his administration.
