Trump Vows to Bring Untiy to America

Trump Vows to Bring Untiy to America

Donald Trump on Thursday pledged to bring unity to America as he swept into Washington on the eve of the most consequential moment of his life—his inauguration as 45th president of the United States.
On Friday, Trump will cap an extraordinary and improbable run for the White House when he takes the reins from President Barack Obama at mid-day, launching the nation into uncharted waters, AFP reported.
“We’re going to unify our country,” Trump told a cheering crowd of thousands in front of the Lincoln Memorial after a concert that ended in a burst of fireworks.
“We’re going to do things that haven’t been done for our country for many, many decades,” he added. “It’s going to change. I promise you.”
Earlier in the day, Trump lunched with Republican congressional leaders and his Cabinet nominees. He then crossed back over the Potomac River to speak at the marble memorial, where at one point he looked up and saluted the seated statue of Abraham Lincoln.
“There’s never been a movement like this,” he said, describing the wave of support among working-class Americans who pushed Trump to victory over Hillary Clinton in one of the most divisive elections in US history.
“Well, you’re not forgotten anymore,” he said. “We’re going to get it turned around. We’re going to bring our jobs back.”
Later he tweeted: “Thank you for joining us at the Lincoln Memorial tonight—a very special evening! Together, we are going to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Trump’s swearing-in on the steps of the Capitol is scheduled to be administered by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts at 11:47 a.m. (1647 GMT).
Three former presidents will be in attendance along with numerous dignitaries, including his Democratic presidential rival—a former first lady and secretary of state.
Trump’s working-class supporters have sent him to Washington to turn the page on the Obama era and upend the political status quo.
