Obama leaves White House, Trump gets ready for Presidency

WASHINGTON, D.C., Donald Trump’s inauguration is almost upon us – the 45th President of the United States will take office just 10 weeks after stunning America and the world by winning the US presidential election, according to The Telegraph.

The eyes of the world will be on Trump as he takes the Oath of Office and deliver his inaugural address, the British daily said.

He will replace Barack Obama in the White House, but not before a ceremony that dates back to George Washington.

Trump’s inauguration to become President takes place at noon local time (5 pm GMT) on Friday, 20th January.

The main ceremony will be held at the White House, followed by a number of Inaugural Balls across the city of Washington, D.C.

The official swearing-in ceremony will be on the steps in front of the Capitol.

Barack Obama will wake up in the White House on the morning of 20th January. But that night Donald Trump will go to sleep for the first time in his new home.

The White House changes hands almost as instantaneously as the presidency does.

While the inaugural ceremonies are under way, staff at the White House will be frantically moving out the remnants of the Obama administration, and preparing the residence and offices for their new inhabitants.

The next morning, Trump will walk from his new White House residence to the West Wing to attend to his duties as President of the United States.
