  • Together we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come.

  • But we will get the job done.

  • Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power.

  • Donald Trump

    Today's ceremony, however, has very special meaning.

  • Because today, we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another.

  • But we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.

  • For too long, a small group in our nation's capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

  • Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth.

  • Politicians prospered, but the jobs left.

  • Donald Trump

    And the factories closed.
