President-elect Donald Trump arrives in Washington ahead of swearing in

Among attendees at the two-hour event were his family, actor Jon Voight and Soul Man singer Sam Moore. Put some of those Americans in the inauguration seats of the intolerant politicians who refuse to give our new president a chance to "Make America Great Again". With such a volatile, bombastic, vain and slippery person as President of the U.S., it is certainly most concerning for America and for other nations of the world. Everybody, everybody, throughout all of our country. "They don't like saying more counties than anybody you look at a map of the counties in this country that we won and it's literally entirely, it just looks like it is entirely red".

"But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action".

He hinted that Woody Johnson, owner of the New York Jets NFL team, would be United States ambassador to Britain.

The President-elect will follow tradition tonight and stay at Blair House, which is the president's guest house. Trump will be sworn in at noon at the Capitol. "They're the only ones to ask", he replied.

"It's a movement like we've never seen anywhere in the world, they say".
