Trump, a combative New York real estate mogul who harnessed a powerful populist message for a deeply divided country in his first bid for public office, took the oath of office from Supreme Court Justice John Roberts.

Wearing an overcoat and bright red tie and instantly recognizable by his long, swept back blond hair, Trump raised his right hand to take the oath of office, placing his left hand on two Bibles — his own, and one used by Abraham Lincoln in 1861.
