ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Protesters set a limousine on fire in Washington D.C. and burned some trash as well as assaulted a man wearing a 'Make America Great Again,' pro Trump hat, after Donald Trump was sworn in as the President of the United States on Friday (January 20). Trump took power as the 45th president of the United States and pledged to pursue "America First" policies in an inaugural address that was a populist, anti-Washington rallying cry. Sketching a bleak vision of a country he said was ravaged by rusted-out factories, crime, gangs and drugs, Trump indirectly blamed his predecessors in the White House for policies that helped the establishment at the expense of struggling families. Trump, age 70, takes over a country divided after a savage election campaign. A wealthy New York businessman and former reality TV star, he will set the country on a new, uncertain path at home and abroad.
