    Washington Week [#5630H] For just the 45th time in American history, the United States will demonstrate the smooth transition of power on Friday as President-elect Donald Trump takes the oath of office. Trump's first address as president will be "a very personal and sincere statement about his vision for the country," according to the incoming press secretary.
    The long and turbulent presidential campaign left Trump bruised, and he will enter the White House as the least-popular president in more than four decades. In addition to his supporters traveling to Washington, DC, for the inauguration, thousands of protesters are planning to disrupt the inauguration festivities. More than 60 Democrats in Congress are planning to skip the ceremony over their disagreements with the president-elect, including his perceived insult of civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis.
    Shortly after taking the oath, Trump will begin to implement his ambitious agenda including a repeal of the Affordable Care Act and building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Some of his proposals will be achieved through executive orders, which Trump is expected to start signing Friday afternoon. Can the new president find common ground with lawmakers and fulfill his campaign promise to Make America Great Again?
    We discuss the vision Donald Trump lays out in his inaugural address with: Ed O'Keefe of The Washington Post, Peter Baker of The New York Times, Carol Lee of The Wall Street Journal, Dan Balz of The Washington Post, and Yamiche Alcindor of The New York Times.
