Trump to be inaugurated as ‘greatest president’ by 2020
Donald Trump will be inaugurated as the “greatest President” on Tuesday.
Trump will take office as the 45th president of the United States.
The first day of his inauguration is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
It is the largest-ever inaugural in the United Kingdom.
“This historic day is a testament to our country’s commitment to a better tomorrow, and to the strength of the American people,” Trump said in a statement.
“This is an honor to join with the men and women of the armed forces who will fight and die in the service of our great country.”
The president-elect has been dogged by allegations of sexual assault, and has denied them.
In March, he tweeted a picture of himself and a woman with whom he was in a relationship.
“I am the best thing that’s happened to women in a long time,” Trump told The Associated Press at the time.
“I’ve had great success with women, many of whom I respect and admire.”
Trump has been in office for less than two weeks.
He will be sworn in at 10 a.m., with Vice President Mike Pence taking the oath of office at 11 a.ms.
The ceremony will be broadcast live on CNN.
