Donald Trump is presidentBy Norman Carr Jan 21, 2017
Many Canadians plan to watch Donald Trump's inauguration as the next USA president Friday on television screens, through online feeds or with friends at a local pub, but some say they will deliberately ignore the spectacle.
Crowd numbers were way down on previous years for the inauguration of the first president in recent memory to arrive in the White House with a net negative approval rating, and one who lost the popular vote by around 3 million votes.
Melania Trump brought a gift from Tiffany & Co.to the White House on Inauguration Day.
Hundreds of thousands of people descended on Washington to mark the occasion. We will make America wealthy again.
However, Forbrich said his nature as an American is to be hopeful.
"It's going to be a very personal and honest statement about his vision for the country", the incoming White House press secretary said as he hinted at the tone that the Republican billionaire will take.
"Vice President Mike Pence has a record of rejecting LGBT rights", Forbrich said.

Aside from these, iPhone 8 is speculated to have its wireless charging feature, which Energous CEO Steve Rizzone has hinted at. As it is an all-glass front screen, the front camera, Touch ID fingerprint sensor will be embedded into the screen.
Forbrich worries that the new president's priorities don't include him. His looming presidency has the Muslim world fearful and the State of Israel on tenterhooks, gripped by his incoming administration's suggestion, as recently as Thursday, that it plans to speedily relocate America's embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem - a highly symbolic move that would elate many Israelis and enrage Palestinians.
Mary Alice, who lives in Washington, said there may be protesters who were not entirely peaceful, but the basic anti-Trump sentiment most demonstrators wanted to express would shine through.
"I thought that was powerful", Ruiz, who travelled from San Angelo, Texas, said afterwards.
Still, Trump must overcome complications and political obstacles to deliver some of the specifics he mentioned. "And you know I'm not a person who breaks promises".
The White House may have served as home to the Obama family on Friday morning, but its welcome mat belongs to the Trumps that afternoon.
Chief Justice John G Roberts administered the oath of office to Mr Trump.
The speech began on a darker note, as President Trump spoke of an America where politicians prospered, jobs disappeared and factories rusted-out.
"This American carnage stops right here and right now", he said. In many ways, the speech drew directly from the tone and approach of Trump's often very-negative campaign rally speeches, once again showing that the "pivot" many observers have long expected Trump to make toward a more unifying and detached tone, is not coming. In his inaugural address, Trump said, the United States has "subsidized the armies of other countries" and "defended other nations' borders while refusing to defend our own".
