Earlier in the morning of the inauguration day, the Obamas Welcomed Donald and Melania Trump to the White House Just Before Inauguration. In a longstanding inaugural tradition, the Obamas welcomed the Trumps to the White House for tea or coffee on Friday morning, just hours before President-elect Donald Trump was due to be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America.
President Barack Obama and his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama, met the president-elect and his wife, incoming first lady Melania Trump, on the steps leading to the front door of the White House. The two couples exchanged pleasantries and the president greeted Trump by saying, “How are you? Good to see you. Congratulations.” Mrs. Trump presented Mrs. Obama with a Tiffany & Co. blue gift box tied in white satin ribbon.“

In an inaugural address fired with the populist fuel of his norm-shattering campaign, President Donald Trump on Friday vowed to take on entrenched interests in Washington, secure America’s borders, fix its infrastructure, bring back factory jobs, and wipe out terrorism. “The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer,” he promised. “You will never be ignored again.”
Trump said in his inaugural speech, inter alia:
“This American carnage stops right here and stops right now,” he said from the steps of the Capitol. “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 reinforce old alliances and form new ones, and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth,” Trump predicted. He did not name Russia, but the president is known to favor closer ties with Moscow.
We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action — constantly complaining but never doing anything about it,” he said. “The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.
What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.
For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry; subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military,” he said. “From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first.
We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs,” he said. “Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.
Together, we will make America strong again. We will make America wealthy again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again,” he promised. “And yes, together we will make America great again.”
