Donald John Trump has been officially inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States Friday, ushering in a new and more unpredictable era.

In his inaugural speech, the US President vowed to shatter the established order and restore American greatness.

“Together we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come,” said the new President.

Mr. Trump presented a dark vision of a nation afflicted by division and dislocation, exploited and forgotten by a group of Washington elites and diminished around the world. His arrival, he promised, would finally turn it around.

“This American carnage stops right here and stops right now,” he declared in a forceful 16-minute Inaugural Address.

“The time for empty talk is over,” he added later. “Now arrives the hour for action. Do not allow anyone to tell you it cannot be done.”

“We will face challenges, we will confront hardships, but we will get the job done,” he added.

He also stated that the inauguration represented not just the peaceful transfer of power from one party to another. “We are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you the people,” he said.

Former Presidents Mr. Obama, former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush also attended the ceremony, though they opposed Trump’s election. Former President Senior George Bush remained hospitalized in Houston.

Many House Democrats announced they would boycott the event in protest.

Three religious leaders representing different faiths offered invocations.

Michael Richard Pence was also sworn in first as vice president by Justice Clarence Thomas.

With the completion of the oath, the Marine Band played “Ruffles and Flourishes” four times and then “Hail to the Chief,” followed by a 21-gun salute.
