Watch: Trump being sworn in
The entire world watched yesterday (Friday) as Donald Trump was sworn in as America’s 45th president but after all the celebrations and balls, today will be Trump’s first official full day in the White House. Trump and his wife Melania are expected to visit the Washington National Cathedral and then the CIA headquarters in Virginia while protests against him continue throughout the country.
Trump’s visit to the CIA headquarters is expected to take place despite the fact that the Senate has yet to confirm Trump’s nominee Mike Pompeo as the head of the agency. Trump will be under tight security due to the claims of Russian involvement in the election.

Protests against Trump are still going on in Washington DC and throughout America. Since yesterday, about 200 protesters have been arrested after hundreds clashed with police forces and vandalized property after the inauguration. The protests are expected to resume today with the scheduled women’s march in Washington DC. Thousands of women are expected to participate in the Women’s March on Washington in order to protest Trump’s controversial part remarks regarding women and minorities. According to the official website of the march, the Women’s March on Washington’s goal is “to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore.”

Following the inauguration ceremony yesterday, Trump signed an executive order against Obamacare, aimed at making it easier to dismantle it in the future. Shortly thereafter, Trump’s Chief of Staff Reince Priebus instructed all executive departments and agencies to halt all new or pending regulations so that the new administration can review them.
At the first celebratory inaugural ball last night, Trump said: “Well, we did it. We did it. We began this journey and they said we, we, and me, we didn’t have a chance but we knew we were going to win and we won.”
