President Donald Trump started his inaugural address by saying that "together we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come."
He says Americans have "joined a great national effort to build our country and restore its promise for all people."
President Trump also thanked all of the past presidents in attendance, including former campaign foes Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.
Trump says the United States exists to serve its citizens and Americans want great schools, safe neighborhoods and good jobs, but too many people face a different reality: rusted-out factories, a bad education system, crime, gangs and drugs.
At 70, Trump is the oldest person to be sworn in as president, marking a generational step backward after two terms for Obama, one of the youngest presidents to serve as commander in chief.
