“I Donald John Trump do solemnly swear that I will faithfully execute the office of president of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So help me God”.

With the traditional 35-word sentence uttered America has its 45th president, and the reign of Donald Trump has properly begun.

He said there was no room for prejudice in American patriotism, and that citizens were now joined in a national effort to rebuild the country. From now on, he promised, it would be “America first”.
