Beautiful moments from Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration

Donald John Trump was sworn in as America’s 45th president on 20 January, 2017. As part of his solidarity visits since he was sworn in, Mr. President visited the CIA headquarters Saturday afternoon for a brief speech.

He told the excited audience amid cheers and an enthusiastic burst of applause, “that we are going to start winning again, and you’ll be leading the charge.”

“There is nobody that feels stronger about the intelligence community and the CIA than Donald Trump,” the 70-year-old president said. “I am so behind you…”

Mr. Trump’s achievement as the President of the United States of America has faced huge criticisms, oppositions and demonstrations, but none of these forces are capable of distracting the billionaire business mogul who is hell bent on making his country great again.

Some memorable lines from his inauguration speech include the following:

  • “We are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.”
  • “Whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.”
  • “January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.”
  • “America will start winning again, winning like never before.”
  • “We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.”
