Donald Trump arrives in Washington to lay claim to White House

For such a divisive figure, Donald Trump managed to unify hundreds of thousands of Americans at the Women's March on Washington.

It wasn't just a Washington phenomenon and it wasn't just women: More than 600 "sister marches" were planned across the country and around the world, and plenty of men were part of the tableau, too.

Some marchers are undoubtedly marching explicitly against President Trump, against a man who speaks about women as if they were pieces of meat, who seems a throwback to Mad Men days in his rating and groping of women.

"Today we're standing up for our country, for the rights of the indigenous people, for the rights of the refugees who have been held unfairly at Manus and Nauru islands, for the rights of women who deserve to be able to own their own bodies". "It's a march about women's rights that are very much imperiled by the policies President-elect Trump appears headed for". That said, I respect that you are our [president], and I want to be able to support you. We will make America wealthy again. Asked whether she thought the new president would hear the message of the march, she replied: "I don't care what he's hearing".

What was uppermost in the mind of Mr. Trump on the day of his swearing-in?

"This American carnage stops right here and right now", he said.

Other protests took place in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester as Mr Trump was being sworn in as the 45th U.S. president.

An immediate task for the new administration will be to get Trump's Cabinet nominees confirmed.

Music icon Madonna offered inspiration for many fearful issues like abortion rights, gun control, climate change- all targets of the Trump administration.

Donald Trump arrives in Washington to lay claim to White House

Security is tight with thousands of law-enforcement officers deployed and kilometers of crowd barriers set up as about 900,000 people are expected to turn out in the capital for the inauguration, including thousands of protesters. Here's the power. Here's the majority of America, right here.

"One of us can be dismissed".

"We are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people".

The Republican billionaire's arrival caps an extraordinary and improbable run for the White House that, once he takes the reins from President Barack Obama at noon Friday, will launch the United States into new and uncharted waters.

"I'm hopeful that this [march] mobilises people because there's a lot of work to be done", said Ms Caputo.

Donald and Melania Trump may step out of their limousine briefly along the parade route to wave to well-wishers.

"It's a reality we have to be aware of", she said.

The Marches welcome protesters of all genders and say their mission statement is to take a stand against growing right-wing political sentiment in all its forms, including homophobia, transphobia, anti-Muslim bigotry, misogyny, class prejudice and racism.
