President Donald Trump in Inaugural Speech Promises to Put 'America First'

Shortly after leaving the stage, Trump took to Twitter, because of course he did, to send out his first tweets as President Trump.

It allows the Health and Human Services Department and other federal agencies to delay implementing parts of the law that might impose a "fiscal burden" on states, health care providers, families or individuals.

Rather than drawing on the power of a deity, Trump called on Americans to draw on their own power created by patriotism.

Anti-Trump forces were also out in person in Washington and online.

Trump thanked his supporters, his Vice President Mike Pence and even gave a shout-out to God for helping with the weather.

Similar marches are already taking place in Australia and New Zealand and many others are planned around the world. "Michelle and I are off on a quick vacation, then we'll get back to work", he wrote.

After a divisive campaign, Trump devoted little of his speech toward trying to unite a divided country, as past presidents have done. As he said in his inaugural address: "The time for empty talk is over".

Trump on Saturday defended the size of his crowd during the inauguration, accusing the media of lying about the estimates.

"I won't stop; I'll be right there with you as a citizen, inspired by your voices of truth and justice, good humor, and love", he tweeted. Mr. Trump said in a Twitter post hours ahead of the swearing-in. "We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American". Trump's forgotten men and women are not, by and large, on welfare, but they are hard-working Americans who feel the government has let them down. From this day, EVERY decision in Washington DC, whether it is on trade or taxes or immigration or foreign affairs, will be made with an aim to protect American people.

Police in riot gear dispersed them using pepper spray.
