ROUGH CUT - NATURAL (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump, and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, took their seats at the U.S. Capitol for Trump's inauguration on Friday (January 20). Trump will swear-in later as the 45th president of the United States, taking power over a divided country after a savage campaign and setting the country on a new, uncertain path at home and abroad. In a event likely to draw 900,000 people, including protesters, Trump and his vice president, Mike Pence, will take the oath of office at midday (1700 GMT) outside the domed U.S. Capitol, with U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts presiding. Trump's critics have been emboldened to attack his legitimacy because his win came in the Electoral College, which gives smaller states more clout in the outcome. He lost the popular vote to Clinton by about 2.9 million.
