ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Mike Pence was sworn in as the new vice president of the United States on Friday (January 20), moments before Donald Trump also swore in, becoming the 45th president of the United States. The two men take control of a divided county in a transition of power that Trump has promised will focus on "America First."

The crowd stretched westward on a cool day of occasional light rain.
