Live Updates: Donald Trump becomes 45th US President
New Delhi : Dark clouds and a swollen sky fail to reduce the enthusiasm of real estate tycoon and TV reality show host Donald Trump who was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States in a powerful ceremony.
U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts administered the oath to Trump, 70. Trump used two bibles when he took his oath of office - Abraham Lincoln's Bible and a childhood Bible given to him by his mother. Present at the podium were Trump's children and his wife Melania.
Before Trump took the oath, Mike Pence took the oath of Vice President. And before he took the oath, Trump gave a thumbs up to the crowd.
