Outgoing Gov. Jerry Brown's parting piece of advice for newly sworn in Gov. Gavin Newsom? "Don't screw it up."

Though Newsom inherits a booming state that is itself the world's fifth-largest economy, California also has the highest rate of child poverty in the United States.

In his inaugural address and amid jabs at Trump administration policies, Newsom declared, "We will be the California to all."

The new governor's speech was interrupted by the perfectly timed appearance of his two-year-old son, Dutch Newsom, who wandered onstage as Gov. Newsom talked about early childhood care, education and family separation at the border.
