The peaceful transition of American power will be witnessed by the world once again Friday. Donald Trump will be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States. That has brought jubilation in conservative America. For them, Trump's win is a sigh of relief, a repudiation of Barack Obama's America and a pause on the liberalization of the world's remaining superpower. 

But this day isn't without controversy. There are hard feelings — and fear — in the other America. A polarized country, which in many ways can be separated by how one views Trump, sets the backdrop for the incoming president's inaugural speech. What he says could have far-reaching consequences and signal a critical course for how he intends to reach out across the American divide – and how he intends to govern.  — Domenico Montanaro
