INDEPENDENT (UK) – Donald Trump has been sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.
Mr Trump and his team will now embark on his avowed mission to undo many of the achievements of Barack Obama, including the monumental health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act.
“The movement continues – the work begins!” President Trump tweeted hours before the inauguration ceremony took place.
Mr Trump will enter the White House with the lowest favourability rating in four decades at 41.8 per cent – roughly half of Barack Obama’s 2009 rating.
Hundreds of thousands of people filled the streets of Washington DC to attend the inauguration ceremony, a number of whom were protesting the new President.
