The inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States marked the commencement of the four-year term of Donald Trump as President and Mike Pence as Vice President. A public ceremony was held on Friday, January 20, 2017, on the West Front of the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.

The inauguration theme is "Uniquely American", a phrase that highlights the inaugural ceremony as "a uniquely American expression of our Constitutional system".

The theme also stresses the peaceful transition of power, and that the American people are "united behind an enduring republic".

The inaugural ceremonies held in Washington, D.C., from January 17 to 21, 2017, will include concerts, the swearing-in ceremony, luncheon and parade, inaugural balls, and the interfaith inaugural prayer service.

The presidential oath was administered to Trump during his swearing-in ceremony on January 20, 2017, by Chief Justice of the United States John Roberts, and the vice presidential oath of office was administered to Pence by Associate Justice Clarence Thomas.

Trump was sworn in on the Lincoln Bible, the same used at the inauguration of Barack Obama, and on Trump's personal childhood Bible. Re: Donald Trump's Inauguration: Live Updates

Melania Trump made it very clear that she will be a fashion- forward First Lady, selecting a stunning baby blue dress and jacket for her husband Donald's inauguration ceremony.

The public got their first glance at Melania's perfectly-tailored look when she departed Blair House alongside her husband on their way to mass at St. John’s Church on Friday morning.Melania accessorized her outfit with a pair of heels, clutch and elbow-length gloves that were all the same hue of blue.
