Inauguration Day 
(2,0 ns)
Donald Trump is the next president of the United States. He will be sworn in as the 45th president of the U.S. on Inauguration Day, January 20, 2017.

Donald Trump has started planning his agenda for the next four years. Since the election he has also been putting together a team of advisers called the Cabinet.

Trumps main goal is to bring the Americans together again and this will be a tough task. He said in his speech after being elected: “Now it is time for America to bind the wounds of division.” … “To all Republicans and Democrats and independents across this nation, I say it is time for us to come together as one united people.”

But what do you think Donald Trump will say in his speech on Inauguration Day? Some of his political goals include keeping the country safe from terrorism and creating more jobs. But are there other issues you think he will mention?

Obama’s Inauguration Speech
For inspiration, read what Obama said 8 years ago. His Inaugurations Speech took place on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 and was held in Washington, D.C. It was one of the most observed events ever by a global audience.

In Barack Obama’s speech, he referred to ideals expressed by Lincoln about national unity, renewal and continuity. He hoped for a new sense of responsibility to answer America’s challenges in the world and also at home.

Obama made these points at his first speech on Inauguration Day 8 years ago:

  • The economy is weakened.
  • We need to transform schools, colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.
  • We need to raise health care quality and lower costs.
  • Global climate issues threaten the planet. Obama said: “We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories.”
  • Alliances with other countries are important. Obama said: “America will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe.”
  • We need to spread democracy and freedom. Obama said: “We will support democracy from Asia to Africa, from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom.” and “All of us are created equal.”
