Trump takes Oath of Office, Jan. 20, 2017

Added: Trump was sworn in with two Bibles:

The president-elect's Bible dates back to childhood, according to the Presidential Inaugural Committee, which announced more details of Friday's swearing-in on Tuesday. 

The Bible was given to Trump by his mother when he graduated from Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in the Queens, New York, neighborhood of Jamaica in 1955 — just days before he turned 9 years old.

The Lincoln Bible was first used on March 4, 1861, for the 16th president's inauguration. It has only been used twice since, both times by President Obama: at his first inauguration in 2009 as well as his second in 2013.

The burgundy velvet-bound book is part of the collections of the Library of Congress."...
