WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — Donald Trump, assuming power as the 45th President of the United States on Friday, spoke an “America first” message, saying his administration would take the power away from Washington’s do-nothing politicians and return it to the nation’s “forgotten” Americans.

The billionaire real estate mogul embraced a powerful populous message throughout the duration of his campaign, spoke the same way from the mantle on Friday. He took the oath of office from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

“The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer,” he told the crowd. “And I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never, ever let you down.”

“We citizens of America are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all our people,” Trump said. “Together we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come.”

Trump pledged to transfer the power in Washington from the politicians to the electorate they represent, vowed to return jobs to the U.S. and to protect the border, a moment which drew large cheers from the assembled crowd, especially when the President promised to eradicate “radical Islam.” He also promised to “no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about (it).”

“The time for empty talk is over,” he said. “Now arrives the hour of action.”

The president that for too long, too few people have possessed all of the power, leaving Americans to pay the price.

“Washington flourished but the people did not share in its wealth,” he said.”Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.”

Less than an hour after he finished delivering his remarks, Trump escorted his predecessor, Barack Obama, and former First Lady Michelle Obama, to a waiting Executive One helicopter and circled the Capitol en route to Joint Base Andrews for a flight to deliver the former first family to Palm Springs, Calif. for their post-White House trip.

Vice President Mike Pence was sworn in by Justice Clarence Thomas.

Trump was joined at the ceremony by his wife and children, as well as three of the four living former presidents, members of the Supreme Court and leaders from Congress. Additionally, his Democratic rival and former election opponent Hilary Clinton was in attendance, tweeted that she was there “to honor our democracy & its enduring values. I will never stop believing in our country & its future.”

Hundreds of thousands turned out for the event, despite the forecasted rain in the nation’s capital. Trump, who spent the night at Blair House, the official guest house of the President, began the day by logging on to his favorite social media platform to greet Americans.

As one man enters, another was prepared to leave. Obama strode along the colonnade outside the Oval Office and said “of course,” when asked by reporters if he felt nostalgic. Asked for any last words to the American people, he said simply, “thank you.”
