Donald Trump is officially the 45th president of the United States and begins his first full day in office today. His inaugural address Friday echoed his campaign, striking a populist tone and painting a dark picture of America, one that he promised to restore to its former greatness. His address was the first to use the phrase "American carnage," and he vowed to put "America first." But even with that tone, the pageantry and, yes, bipartisanship of the day can't be ignored, either. Trump thanked the Obamas for their graciousness and help in the transition, and his defeated rival, Hillary Clinton, and former President Bill Clinton attended. Trump even acknowledged them in a congressional luncheon. He vowed, "Whether you're a Republican or Democrat, doesn't make any difference. We're going to get along." But the many protests across the city, and the Women's March happening today, show America remains deeply divided.  —  Jessica Taylor
