Donald Trump inauguration: Watch live streaming online
Real estate magnet has proved almost everyone in wrong in around two year long presidential battle. From being ridiculed to bin elected as the US president, it is a huge achievement for the maverick businessman that he is.
Now as the inauguration time is approaching, thousands of his fans and a huge number of his opponents are gathering at different points in the Washington DC. While his supporters will be cheering wildly for him, his haters are here in equally large numbers to protest his anointment as the 45th US president.
The US capital has been turned into a garrison town of sorts with the deployment of thousands of police and FBI sleuths. The administration has also put barriers several kilometer long as part of a vast security operation.
Washington is not the only town where protesters, defying severe weather conditions, have assembled. In New York too a huge crowd consisting of thousands of people attended a rally where dozens of celebrities and politicians voiced their concerns about the president-elect.
Nonetheless, despite all their objections and protests, Trump is all set to take his oath for office today. Donald Trump, with his personal fortunes of around $4 billion, will be sworn in before midday local time (17:00 GMT) by Chief Justice John Roberts, and make his inaugural speech. The inaugural program is all set to be attended by former presidents and first ladies, including Bill Clinton and his wife Hillary, Mr Trump’s opponent in the recent election.
