Donald Trump begins overhaul as first executive orders signed

Others including the Daily Telegraph and The Guardian referred to elements of his inaugural speech such as his pledge to "put America first" and "end American carnage".

"Washington flourished - but the people did not share in its wealth", he went on. "I had no idea the kind of team that Donald Trump as president would assemble".

Similar marches are already taking place in Australia and New Zealand and many others are planned around the world.

"Similar to the Clinton and Bush White House websites, President Obama's WhiteHouse.gov will be preserved on the web and frozen after January 20th and made available at ObamaWhiteHouse.gov", former White House digital staffer Kori Schulman wrote.

And actually, Trump might have been seen by more viewers than either Obama or Reagan.

The Senate is set to confirm the first of Trump's picks, James Mattis as defense secretary and John Kelly as secretary of homeland security, on Friday, according to US news outlets. In some areas, Trump supporters yelled back at protesters.

While the White House has scrubbed most references to climate change from its new website, federal agencies involved in climate change research, such as NASA, still have extensive websites devoted to climate change despite the changeover in the administration.

"We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, every foreign capital, and every hall of power", Trump said.

The Trump White House stripped the official website of all mention of Mr Obama's key policy agendas, including climate change and LGBT rights along with the civil rights history section.

Similar to the Packers' defense, the Steelers' unit has not been the best this season, but they have rounded into form as of late. The most notable thing he doesn't have, that the other three elite quarterbacks still standing do have, is a Super Bowl ring.

"Minutes after he was sworn in, any illusion that Trump would act in the best interests of families in this country as President were wiped away by a statement of priorities that constitute an historic mistake on one of the key crises facing our planet and an assault on public health", Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said in a statement.

Trump said one network estimated turnout at 250,000.

His inauguration speech also repeated one of his most frequent national security promises of the campaign trail: a full re-evaluation of American foreign military aid.

Asked about his first day, Trump said: "It was busy but good - a attractive day".

In his inaugural address, Mr Trump, 70, struck a nationalist, protectionist tone.

"We are going to unify our country and we will make America great again".

"I'm doing this to express resistance to the change that await us", she said.

However away from the jubilation in the ballrooms there were ugly scenes as thousands of anti-Trump protesters took to the streets in the American capital and across the United States to vent their anger.

Women across America have knitted more than 60,000 pink "pussyhats" - with cat ears - for the marchers to wear, in a bid to claim back the derogatory term used by Trump in a hot-mic boast about groping women's genitals.
