On Friday, January 20th, Donald J. Trump, real estate mogul and reality TV star, has become the 45th President of the United States. Mike Pence has also become the Vice President.

The two were sworn in by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas in front of a modest crowd.

In attendance were the former President Barack Obama, former first lady Michelle Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, and many more.

Also in attendance was Donald Trump and Mike Pence’s families, including the new First Lady Melania Trump.

This happened. It’s real.
