Donald Trump Will Be Officially Sworn In As President on Friday, January 20th
Whether you're ready or not, Donald Trump is set to be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States later this week.
As President Obama has been tying up loose ends following nearly eight years in the White House, President-elect Trump and his team have been preparing to take over.
Things will become official on Friday afternoon, as President-elect Trump will be sworn in as President on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.
If you thought that Trump would be toning things down ahead of his swearing in ceremony, think again. The President-elect has continued to lash out via his Twitter account, with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Saturday Night Live and outgoing CIA Chief John Brennan all counting themselves as targets.
For some people, Friday represents a new start for the country. For others, Friday will be one of the worst days of their lives.
The United States is a very fractured country right now, and we'll likely get a glimpse of that on Friday, as there are reportedly several large protests planned.
The Presidential campaign was nasty and dirty and will likely set the stage for four years of acrimony, bitterness and resentment between the two parties. The world is going to change immediately as a result of Trump's swearing in, as the incoming President has already gone on record as saying that NATO is "obsolete", amongst other things. Donald Trump and his cabinet are pretty much the polar opposites of President Obama and his cabinet, and the world is going to change dramatically as a result.
There is plenty to chew on right now in anticipation of President-elect Trump's inauguration on Friday. As much as people are considering what a world with Donald Trump as President of the United States will look like, there is also a question of President Obama's legacy.
How will President Obama be remembered? Can his eight years as President be considered a success?
The President Trump era begins this Friday. Are you ready?
