Just as the Constitution proscribes, the peaceful transfer of power from the 44th President of the United States to the 45th took place at 12:00pm January 20, 2017.

In his inaugural address, Donald J. Trump maintained the “Make America Great Again” campaign mantra that helped sweep him into office. And he took the theme of “transfer of power” a step further, saying “we are transferring power from Washington, DC and giving it back to you, the American people.”

He re-emphasized “America first” and promised to follow “two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.”

A new chapter in U.S. history is about to be written.
